Utah Courts have been offering a Divorce Education for Children class for several years now.  The class is offered to assist children impacted b y divorce.  The class helps to identify feelings common to children in divorce situations, while teaching the children how to communicate their feelings to their parents.  A mental health professional teaches the class and is assisted by a state court commissioner.  Parents and children both report good things about the class and the impact it has on the children in everyday behavior.  The class is open to children ages 9 to 12 (3rd through 6th grades) whose parents are divorced already or are currently divorcing.  The class is free of charge and is he,d at the Scott M. Matheson Courthouse in Salt Lake City.  The class is from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on select Saturdays, and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on select Mondays.  Pre-registration for the class is required.  The upcoming schedule is as follows:
