CROSSROADS of Parenting and Divorce:
5 Steps to Prevent Divorce Abuse program kits
by Susan Boyan, M.Ed., L.M.F.T., and Ann Marie Termini, Ed.S., L.P.C.
A 4- to 6-hour seminar to help divorced or divorcing parents
It is so easy for adults to get distracted during a divorce, forgetting the primary victims of the split: their children. With this seminar, parents can learn to manage that conflict and establish a positive new relationship as co-parents – a relationship that puts the kids first.
Crossroads of Parenting and Divorce is a five-step seminar designed to prevent divorce abuse—a specific type of emotional abuse that divorcing parents cause when they lose sight of their child's needs. It is a one session seminar that can be completed in just 4-6 hours – satisfying most court requirements for mandated divorce parenting programs.
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.
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. Certificates of completion are available to be ordered for all attendees.
