The Cooperative Parenting and Divorce Group Program is an 8-week, 16 hour co-parenting program that is part video, part group discussion and skill development.  Each session is designed to last two hours. It is recommended for groups of 10-20 divorced or divorcing parents. The group kit is designed for use by therapists, parent educators, churches and schools. No special training is required.

This video-based program gives divorcing parents the power to make positive changes that shield their children from parental conflict and guide 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 resource to date examining the complex realities of divorce.

Each CPD kit includes:

  • A 200 page Cooperative Parenting and Divorce Leader’s Guide that provides detailed     instructions on each session.
  • A 33 minute companion DVD that provides situations demonstrating both positive and     negative behavior.
  • One Cooperative Parenting and Divorce: Parent Guide that provides vital information     and worksheets for parents to do at home.

Here what the judges had to say...

"Divorce itself is tough on children, but constant, often bitter conflict that persists after the divorce makes it even tougher. Divorced or divorcing parents will find the workbook (Parent Guide) and video vignettes openly address likely areas of conflict and offer possible solutions that keep parents centered on what they can both agree on: the happiness and well being of their child. Open communication and genuine respect, even in amidst understandable differences, ground the conflict-resolving strategies. ...leader’s guide is chockfull of practical ideas to engage parents in the subject."
