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.
All materials (except the Leader’s Guide) are in Spanish. Video is dubbed by professional actors in Mexico.
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.
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 at home.
“One ‘gift’ I can give divorcing couples is effective decision-making skills for their children. This program is a great opportunity for them to have that chance.”
“Family therapists Boyan and Termini have created an effective, sturdily constructed book-and-video set focused on managing, reducing and eliminating the conflict following a divorce. Parents are taught to keep conflict away from the kids. Thought the parent guide can be used alone and is more affordable than the set, this is a solid option for special collections supporting mental health professionals and self-help groups.”
Here’s 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 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.”
