WINTER CLASSES SCHEDULED FOR DIVORCE EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN PROGRAM

Salt Lake City, UT - Nearly 12,000 Utah children are impacted by divorce each year, including more than 5,000 children in Salt Lake County. To address the needs of these children, the Utah State Courts offers a free Divorce Education for Children class twice each month. Classes take place on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon and Monday from 6 to 8 p.m. Following are the dates for upcoming classes: Jan. 7 and 26, Feb. 4 and 23, March 4 and 16, 2013.

The Divorce Education for Children class is for children 9- to 12-years-old whose parents have filed for divorce or whose parents are divorced. The class takes place at the Scott M. Matheson Courthouse at 450 South State Street. Advance registration is required by calling (801) 578-3897 or e-mail sabrinap@email.utcourts.gov. There is no charge to attend the class.

The program’s curriculum provides children with skills they can use to better communicate their feelings to parents. A mental health professional teaches the class with the assistance of a state court commissioner. Participation in the children’s class is voluntary.
