Crossroads of Parenting & Divorce

Crossroads of Parenting & Divorce is a five-step seminar designed to prevent divorce abuse—a specific type of emotional abuse that divorcing parents cause when, in their anger and bitterness, they lose sight of their child’s needs.

This video-based seminar will help parents become aware of how their actions may inadvertently harm their children, show how to establish positive post-divorce co-parenting relationships, and provide them with the skills they need to stay child-focused while minimizing poor choices amidst conflict and loss.

Crossroads of Parenting & Divorce is derived from the evidence-based Cooperative Parenting and Divorce program and shares scenes from the same video.

5 steps to prevent divorce abuse

In just one session (4-6 hours), parents will learn how to implement the 5 prevention steps:

Step 1: Keep your child out of the middle.
Step 2: Allow your child to love both parents.
Step 3: Work on your own recovery.
Step 4: Develop new communication skills.
Step 5: Create a positive new relationship as co-parents.

How the seminar works:

This seminar combines video, activities, skill development and discussion. It is designed for providers to offer court systems a new and more effective form of divorce seminar.

Like most divorce seminars, Crossroads is designed to last 4 hours. Optional activities extend the program to 6 hours if needed. The easy-to-read Parent’s Guide (64 pp.) provides vital information and gives examples and exercises to support what they have learned. (The Parent’s Guide also stands alone and is useful even for parents who don’t take the mandated divorce seminar.)

Certificates of completion are available to be ordered for all attendees.
