At the National Family Resiliency Center, Inc. (NFRC), we help children and adults better understand and accept the realities of life-changing experiences in their family, as well as give them the guidance they need in order to identify and express their feelings in a healthy and healing way. We also provide families and professionals with programs and resources to help them navigate the emotionally challenging process of changes that occur throughout the life cycle.
Helping Families to Heal After a Transition
Parents who are truly committed to strong and loving parent-child relationships, as well as their own healing, receive unprecedented support and guidance from NFRC in order to make child-focused decisions at any stage of their relationship, whether they:
- Have made the decision to end an adult relationship, separate or divorce
- Are considering a family transition, but have not yet decided what to do
- Want to explore pathways toward reconciliation, or
- Face divorce-related issues such as dating and remarriage.
The end of a marriage is a sad event, but
it is not the end of the family.
We provide parents who have experienced a
separation with the support they need to heal so
they can put aside the anger and pain of their
relationship or marriage and focus instead on
the needs of their children. Our online program, www.familyconnex.org assists parents in forging
a child focused parenting agreement. NFRC staff
