It is always the children who suffer most when a couple splits up.
We at the Center for Divorce Education are dedicated to assisting parents so that their children's suffering is minimized. Through our research we have found effective methods for reducing the stress of divorce not only for children but also for many couples. Our interactive and skills-based approaches help couples to view their separation or divorce in a new light.
Our site includes resources for you to use including access to professionals. We also have an area for couples who may want to explore reconciliation and strengthening their relationship. And finally, the Center for Divorce Education is dedicated to conducting research and using those findings to keep our programs at the highest quality and cutting edge.
We invite you to explore the site, read our outcome research, try our programs, and find resources that may best suit your circumstance.
We also invite you to sign-up for our quarterly newsletter which will provide news on the latest research from the field, and updates on the work at the Center for Divorce Education.
