Your program kit contains approximately 25 minutes of video to use throughout the seminar to help parents understand key points. The video vignettes clearly illustrate the right and wrong ways to approach co-parenting conversations. The families portrayed in the video reflect families in every community.
Note: Crossroads is derived from the longer Cooperative Parenting and Divorce program and shares much of the same video.
In this segment about negative talk, watch how quickly a casual conversation about TV turns into a scene in which Marcus is put in the middle of his parents’ conflict.
According to “Parent Education to Strengthen Families and Reduce the Risk of Maltreatment,” a 2013 publication of the US Department of Health and Human Services,
“Research has consistently shown that active learning approaches have greater success than passive approaches (CDC, 2009). Interactive methods include activities such as group discussion, role playing, active modeling, homework exercises, and reviewing videos of effective parenting approaches (Brown, 2005).”
With video, group discussion, and skills development activities, Crossroads of Parenting & Divorce meets all those requirements and more!
