Divorce Education built on Scientific Evidence.
Over 100,000 parents have taken our classes, with over 95% positive reviews.
Our programs help parents going through divorce learn respectful communication skills and anger control, allowing them to make better choices - with their children and their ex.
Respectful Communication Skills
Studies show that effective parenting after divorce is directly related to parents ability to respectfully communicate with one another. We identify 5 major ways to improve communication including:
- Active Listening
Ending Loyalty Conflicts
Loyalty conflicts cause the most damage to children. We focus on how parents involve their children in these conflicts, and change that.
Parents who can control their anger are more likely to engage ex’s in a manner that is most likely to lead to amicable results and limit the effects of the separation on their children.
Through our online interactive format, parents learn effective skills that will immediately change the way they interact. Scenarios are enacted and critiqued in streaming video. Participants then choose from realistic solutions and explore different ways of handling the conflicts. Each section includes in-depth tutorials, question and answer sessions, and a quiz to further engrain the new skills.
