The Prince Edward Island Department of Justice and Public Safety, with financial support from the Department of Justice Canada and in cooperation with the Prince Edward Island Parenting Coordination Society are offering a two day training on New Ways for Families: Managing High Conflict Families with Bill Eddy, Esq., LCSW.New Ways for Families® is a short-term counseling and coaching method designed to help parents strengthen conflict-resolution and co-parenting skills during separation or divorce. New Ways for Families® teaches four basic relationship and conflict resolution skills before the major decisions are made. These skills are: flexible thinking, managed emotions, moderate behaviors, and checking yourself (checking yourself by reminding yourself to use these skills when new issues arise). These skills are essential to all successful relationships and to resolving conflicts.All professionals involved with a family reinforce these four skills in their work together and in helping the family make each decision throughout the case. The goal is to reduce court appearances and reduce family conflict. This method is specifically designed to address domestic violence, alienation and other issues as a “gateway” to further treatment.This is an excellent professional development opportunity for lawyers, social workers, mediators, parenting coordinators, psychologists and others who work with conflicted families. New Ways for Families® is currently used in over 36 jurisdictions across North America. For more information on the New Ways for Families® method, go to: and
