CORE is an education and coaching program provided by the Domestic Relations Unit of the Greene County Family Court to co-parents that are deemed "high-conflict". This program is designed to help parties learn and improve skills in communication and conflict resolution. The program consists of three parts: a two-hour initial class session, individual coaching sessions where the parties meet alone with their CORE coaches, and co-parenting coaching sessions where the parties meet together with their CORE coaches.
