Parenting Coordination: A New Frontier for Professional Counselors

High conflict families make up a relatively small percentage of the 1.2 million divorces that occur each year in the United States. Yet, these families also seem to utilize the lion's share of resources available through the courts for conflict management. Parenting coordination is an out-of-court intervention designed to facilitate communication between feuding parents, manage conflict, and keep children out of the middle. Due to their unique training and holistic approach, professional counselors are well situated to serve as parenting coordinators with high conflict parents during and after divorce. However, parenting coordination remains a relatively untapped market for counselors. This workshop will focus on unique character traits associated with high conflict families, offer an overview of the parenting coordination role, and highlight why professional counselors are well suited for the role.

Ann OrdwayAnn M. Ordway, JD, PhD, is a core faculty member with the on-campus Counselor Education Department at the University of Phoenix. She was a practicing attorney for 25 years, with a practice focus on high conflict family litigation, including intimate partner violence, custody matters, and child protective services proceedings. Dr. Ordway is a family mediator, child advocate, and parenting coordinator. She is an active member of the American Counseling Association and has presented Learning Institutes at the annual conferences four years in a row. Ann is a Trustee for the Association of Creativity in Counseling, and the Chair of the Emerging Leaders Committee for the International Association of Marriage and Family Counselors. 

The Arizona Counselors Association is an NBCC-Approved CE Provider. Participants can earn 1 CE for this event. This is a FREE event for members, and $75 for non-members.

Not Talking About Mental Health Is Literally Killing Men

Our mission at has always been to help men build themselves into better men. Stronger men. Healthier men. Rooted in science and expert opinion, our content translates dense topics into easily digestible, actionable health advice. Piecemeal, the concepts are sound and effective. But overall health must be viewed holistically.

One of the most integral components is your mind. Your mental health is inseparable from your physical health. Not a revolutionary concept, but what is astounding is the stigmatization that still surrounds men who dare to talk about their mental struggles. As we move into Mental Health Awareness Month this May, we hope to change that.
