Cooperative Parenting and Divorce: Shielding Children
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.
All materials (except the Leader's Guide) are in Spanish. Video
is dubbed by professional actors in Mexico.
How the program works:
Facilitated by a trained parent educator, the 8-week program
is part video and part group discussion. It is recommended for
groups of 10-16 parents. Each session is designed to last 2 hours.
Educates parents on the impact their conflict
has on their children
Explains children’s issues in divorce
Teaches parents the practical skills they
need to manage anger, increase impulse control, resolve conflict
and talk to each other without arguing
Is designed to be the “next step”
for parents in counties that require divorce seminars.
A step-by-step Leader's
Guide (in English) takes you through the course. Additional
training (in English) for this course
is available if needed. The easy-to-read Parent’s
Guide (in Spanish) provides vital information and gives real-life
examples and worksheets so parents can practice their new skills

Winner of a Parent's Guide to Children's
Media (Parenting Division) Award! Here's what the judges had to say
about the English edition:
"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
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 amidst understandable
differences, ground the conflict-resolving strategies. In the
tradition of other Active Parenting series, the leader's guide
is chockful of practical ideas to engage parents in the subject." -Parent's Guide to Children's Media
