Note: Education Programs are one of the original providers of Parenting Classes for Divorce. We're not merely "approved" - we are active live course providers. We've held thousands of live classes since 1990 (and still do)- and helped hundreds of thousands of folks help their families and children in this time of change.
Today there are many new providers to choose from, please remember- we are here to help; for life. We are grateful to be your choice.
An Interactive Learning Environment is a group of educational computer software programs where the participants take part in their learning interactions either with or through the computer over the Internet. Some interactions are between the learner and the software on the website (Such as interactive quizzes and videos), while other interactions may be in the form of instructor-led classroom-like group forums. While this all sounds complicated- it's easy to use and friendly.
When your child completes the course, we will provide you with a Certificate of Completion in Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF). You will need a printer if you would like to print a copy for your records.
Some parents may feel a little awkward about asking their child to enroll in CoD-CoD. We think a simple and honest explanation is best. We'd suggest something like:
"Hey Michael, I want to talk to you for a second. I found this online program that supports children and teens whose parents are divorced. I think it might be good for you to do it. It's private, you can do it on your own whenever you want, and it would make me feel better to know you're getting some extra support because I know the divorce can be really stressful for all of us. I saw a lot of testimonials from kids and teenagers talking about how helpful and enjoyable the program is. How about giving it a try?"
The computer requirements are rather modest, pretty much any desktop computer with speakers should work as long as the computer has the Adobe Flash player installed and available. Please make sure your device is capable of using Flash Player before signing up. This course is NOT designed to be consumed using tablet or cell phone devices. Sorry, refunds will not be issued on the basis of your desired device lacking Flash Player.

CoD-CoD is designed to promote your child's development of four divorce-specific protective factors that have been identified through millions of dollars of psychological research. These four protective factors are increased active coping, decreased avoidant coping, improved coping efficacy, and healthier divorce-related appraisals.
In order to develop these protective factors your child will learn the following skills and information:
Identifying Emotions In Self and Others
Why It's a Bad Idea To Hide Feelings
Common Divorce-Related Feelings
How To Use Thoughts To Manage Feelings
The Thoughts, Feelings, Actions, Events Cycle
Bensonian Relaxation, Progressive Muscle Relaxation and The Relaxing Breath
