Dynamic Classes, Counseling, and Bodywork Services for Parents Experiencing Transition and Challenge

Parenting Education services are the cornerstone of Foundation of Family Values (FOFV). The main way for us to achieve our Mission of enhancing the core values of modern families is through the efforts of parents. Today, more than ever, parents can utilize new skills and support services to cope with ever changing family environments. Making a difference can come from something as simple as learning to respect ourselves and others while maintaining family values. By building this foundation of values-in-action, parents can begin to form new legacies of healthy, happy families that will persist through generations. The FOFV wants to help parents raise healthy, happy children to make a positive difference in the world.

Who are these services for?
Services are primarily designed for parents experiencing divorce, child custody issues, loss, and other family crises and transitions. However, any parent or guardian can benefit from our Parenting Education services.

How are our services different?
Our Parent Education services focus on the health of the whole person. That means that we tend to the Body, Mind, Emotions, and Spirit of each person in order to encourage true balance and lasting change.

  • The Body and Emotions are supported through the use of Therapeutic Massage. Skilled Bodyworkers can facilitate the release of trauma and emotions held within the body.
  • The Mind and Emotions are supported through educational classes that teach parenting skills such as how to recognize and express emotions constructively. In addition, counseling referral services are available for those parents wishing the support of a professional therapist. Finally, we offer a Forum section on our web site that provides parents – and children – with an opportunity to get peer support.
  • As parents begin to experience the benefits of their new skills, the release of emotions, and the support of professionals and peers, they may find a deeper connection with their Spirit.
