Co-Parenting After Divorce

Last Updated: Thursday, July 17, 2014

Introduction

While divorce can be a painful process for children, research has demonstrated that children of divorce can thrive.

The most successful outcomes occur when both parents are able to work in a spirit of collaboration towards what is in the best interest of the children.

As parents we all share a common goal -- to raise happy, healthy, well-adjusted kids.

In order to accomplish this, children need to know they don't have to choose between either parent, and that they can continue to love and be loved by both of them.

In therapy that is focused on co-parenting after divorce, the goal is to help parents move beyond the anger and sadness they may be experiencing with one another into a new kind of relationship that is based on the mutual love of their children.
