Cooperative Parenting & Divorce

This program helps divorcing parents shield their children from parental conflict. Over 8 sessions (16 to 20 hours), parents learn to guide their children through the process of recovery while establishing a positive, long-term, cooperative relationship with the other parent.

This video-based cooperative parenting program gives divorcing or separating parents the power to make positive changes that shield their children from parental conflict and guides them into establishing a long-term relationship with the child’s other parents.

Written by therapists Susan Boyan and Ann Marie Termini, it is the most extensive, informative and interactive cooperative parenting resource to date examining the complex realities of divorce.

How the co-parenting program works:

Facilitated by a trained parent educator, the 8-week program is part video and part group discussion. It is recommended for groups of 10-16 parents. Each session is designed to last 2 hours. (If you need a shorter seminar version, try the 4-hour Crossroads program.)

Educates parents on the impact their conflict has on their children
Explains children’s issues in parenting after divorce or parenting after separation
Teaches parents the practical skills they need to manage anger, increase impulse control, resolve conflict and talk to each other without arguing
Is designed to be the “next step” for parents in counties that require divorce seminars.

The helpful cooperative Parent’s Guide provides vital information and gives real-life examples and worksheets so parents can practice their new skills in the comfort of their own home.
