Parenting After Divorce

Relationships don’t just disappear when couples end their partnership. Parents must continue to communicate with each other in matters of child-rearing. The parents’ behavior greatly affects how well a child adapts to the new family structure. Unrelenting parental conflict harms children. Research shows it is the single most important predictor of poor adjustment in children following a divorce.

Cooperative Parenting and Divorce is an innovative program that creates promising solutions and strategies co-parents can use to prevent parental conflict. The 8-session program is designed to promote effective co-parenting for divorced, divorcing, and unmarried parents while educating them about children’s and teens’ issues with family separation and divorce.

Cooperative Parenting and Divorce uses an evidence based approach–the program works. PPSC offers the program in an 8-week, 2 hour class format.
Cooperative Parenting and Divorce will:

  • Address factors that influence a child’s adjustment to divorce.
  • Assist parents in shifting their relationship to a co-parent relationship.
  • Teach parents anger management and communication skills.
