Dealing With High Conflict Co-parents
The PEACE Program’s primary focus is to teach high-conflict divorced parents the skills they need to reduce conflict and increase successful communication and problem-solving. In this way they can more effectively address the needs of their children. This program is based on the assumption that the parents (not the professionals and the system) are ultimately responsible for and in a position to make the decisions for their children. Some parents need our help to learn the necessary skills in this regard. Additionally, while the system often focuses on the positive and negative differences of the logistical arrangements of the parenting plan, we believe that the interaction patterns between parents are often significantly more damaging to children than the specifics of the parenting plan.
