About Children of Divorce Coping with Divorce (CoD-CoD) Class
The Children of Divorce – Coping with Divorce (CoD-CoD) program is a five-module internet-based mental health promotion program for children of divorce ages 10 and up. Through the careful adaptation of intervention components previously demonstrated to be effective for children from disrupted families, 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 clinical research: increased active coping, decreased avoidant coping, improved coping efficacy, and healthier divorce-related appraisals.
How CoD-CoD addresses the Four Protective Factors
Increased Active Coping
Decreased Avoidant Coping
Reduced Wishful Thinking
Improved Coping Efficacy
Healthier Divorce Appraisals
In order to develop these protective factors, participants master a variety of coping skills and then practice integrating these skills to solve a diverse set of problems. In order to engage participants, CoD-CoD utilizes a mix of modalities including videos, animations, interactive activities, quizzes, and video games. During the program, users work toward a program goal which they set for themselves and complete home practice tasks that challenge them to use their program skills in their day-to-day lives. This process culminates in the final module when the users harness their program skills to develop a plan that addresses the divorce related events they reported being the most concerned about in the first module.
