"This program was recommended by our co-parenting counselor and I would recommend it to other couples who are thinking about or getting a divorce involving children. In fact, I have recommended it to one of my co-workers already. What was most useful for me was the different techniques of communication - self talk, "I" statements, etc."

Diane Hodges

"I highly recommend CIBO to anyone who wants to have a closer, more respectful relationship with the other parent and children."

John Parker
  • Roseburg, Oregon

"After taking CIBO and putting the skills I learned into practice, my kids are much more at ease and know that they can talk to daddy about anything, and it's OK. I recommend this class to everyone!"

Richard Demarco
  • Grants Pass, OR

"Had we taken CIBO before ending our marriage, the skills we learned may have saved our marriage."

JJ Singleton
  • Hooks, TX

"The only program on divorce, listed on the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices, that reduces parental conflict."
