I get asked all the time “How do I get basic training in Parenting Coordination? Who’s providing it?” I always have to answer that it’s necessary to travel out of state for the training. While Arizona can offer some training, it’s just not possible to have intensive, core training on a regular or annual basis.
The APA is offering Core Parenting Coordination training. I know two of the three presenters very well (Dr. Deutsch and Dr. Carter), and this will be a great training. Yes, it requires going to Orlando in July/ August, but it’s worth it if you’re serious about the training. It’s a pre-APA conference seminar and you do not have to register or attend the APA conference to go to this training.
The two-day training cost (for non-APA members) is $390, which is a bargain. Of course you’ll have air fare and at least two nights in a hotel in Orlando on top of that. If you’re serious about getting core training once and for all, this is a seminar I highly recommend. I attended the Advanced Parenting Coordination training put on by APA in 2010 (and yes, that was in San Diego—sorry) and it was outstanding.
