John A. Moran, Ph.D Phoenix, AZ

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


This was a surprisingly good and useful course. Learning about the physiological aspects of our brain functioning with stress and conflict was very interesting and enlightening. I found the skills related to "I" messages to be useful and the focus on mindfulness techniques.

Parent Chicago, IL

I felt like I learned a lot of valuable information, particularly in remembering to Stop-Look-Listen, ways to be mindful, and to remember that the way my children respond to our divorce is directly related to how much conflict they are exposed to.

Parent Grants Pass, OR

I was blown away by this program. It beautifully touches all the bases--the perspective of the children, a systemic view of co-parent conflict, spot-on communication skills, and state-of-the-art brain science--and puts them in a package that deeply engages parents emotionally and cognitively. It's the ideal companion to therapy for individuals or couples dealing with chronic conflict over a divorce.
