High Conflict Co-Parenting Course
Average rating:

 by Jennifer Lee

Much needed information for my divorce case and dealing with my ex. Thank you!

Our Online High Conflict Co-Parenting Course is right for you if you and/or your fellow co-parent experience the following:

  • Any topic is a trigger for conflict. It does not matter what you are discussing. You cannot seem to discuss any topic without it becoming a heated fight or argument. You avoid joint decisions and then get blamed for not co-parenting or making unilateral decisions.
  • Potential safety concerns. One or both of you may have a history of violence, substance abuse, psychological problems, or legal issues that may potentially impact the children's safety during visitation. You are concerned about your co-parent, or your co-parent exaggerates or maximizes the impact of your past history on your children.
  • Over reliance upon litigation. Nearly every major (sometimes minor) decision is litigated. Neither of you can resolve anything on your own especially without the Court and your attorneys.
  • Ground hog day co-parenting. Despite prior agreements about a certain subject, you or the other co-parent revisit the same issue over and over again, even ones that you thought had been resolved.
  • Chronic co-parenting conflict. Most separating parents experience some level of conflict initially which gradually subsides, yet some co-parents remain as highly conflicted as they were years following their separation and or divorce.
  • Alienating conflict. One or both parents unjustifiably campaign against the other parent impacting the relationship between the children and the alienated parent.
  • The New Parenting Standard. Living up to your co-parent's standard as a parent may have been a challenge when you were together, but now that you are apart, those expectations are out of this world.

Online High Conflict Divorce Certification Course Sections and Exercises

Section 1. What is Your Current Co-Parenting Status?

Section 1 Exercise: Consider writing these questions and answers on a device or medium that you can quickly refer to in the future when you begin to be triggered by your co-parent or related situation.

Imagine Life Without This Conflict. How Would Life Be?

  • What type of life do you want for your children? What are your goals and dreams for them?
  • Is there anything that stands in the way of your children attaining what you want for them?
  • How might your children be affected by conflict with your former partner or their family?
  • Identify three or more positive outcomes that would happen for your children if there was less conflict.
  • Identify three or more positive outcomes that would happen for you if there was less conflict.
  • Imagine that, three to five years from now, your child tells a close friend what you did to help them through the separation or divorce. What would you like them to say about you and your behavior?

Section 2. Divorce High Conflict and Toxic Stress. Your Number One Obligation is to Protect Your Children

Section 2 Exercise:Identify, in writing, examples of parental high conflict that have been experienced by your children.

  • Hearing hurtful words and insults about or toward the other parent.
  • Hearing scary, negative tones or threats in a parent's voice.
  • Watching a parent being humiliated or hurt.
  • Hearing a parent screaming and crying.
  • Hearing a parent blaming the other parent in a harsh manner.
  • Feeling forced to pick a parent over the other.
  • Perceiving a parent's withdrawal.
  • Hearing whispering of an older sibling or family member about what is happening.
  • Seeing signs of violence such as bruising, other injury, or one parent being fearful of the other.

Section 3: Models and Stages of Divorce

Section 3 Exercise: The aim is to move through these stages to reach psychic or psychological divorce, where you are now independent and have created a new healthy self-identity. What is your current stage based upon the model that applies to you best, and how can you begin to move to the next and final stage if you are not there already?

Section 4: What can individuals do to adjust to the sudden news or not so sudden news of divorce?

Section 4 Exercise: What has been your responsibility in the conflict, and what do you need to do to change it right now? Most importantly, are you willing to begin to make that change regardless of the other's parent's behavior and position?

Section 5: Adjusting to Conflict with a Difficult Co-Parent

Section 5 Exercise: I want you to write brief statements about the defense mechanisms you use when misinterpreting your co-parent's behaviors or messages, and then write down your alternate thoughts, and then shorten these alternate thoughts and create a list of easy to use self talk messages or mantras that you will gently arm yourself with in preparation for resolving your own reactions during the next conflict.

Section 6: Setting Co-Parenting Boundaries

Section 6 Exercise: I would like you to run through the steps described above to create a four stepped plan to establish a boundary around a problematic behavior exhibited by your spouse that you hope to have improved by persistently changing your own behavior regarding the matter.

  • Identify the Problem
  • Determine Your Response
  • Communicate
  • Follow Through
