Our Approach

The CPI is an organization that focuses on the needs of families experiencing separation or divorce. Our mission is to promote the healing and enhancement of ongoing family relationships.

Recognizing the unique needs of separating families, the Institute offers a wide range of services and resources to assist families as well as professionals with a successful transition from a one to two home family. CPI products are distributed throughout the US as well as internationally.

The professionals at the CPI are dedicated to educating the public, judges, legal and mental health professionals on the impact of divorce and time-sharing arrangements on the development of children.
