Over the past several decades parent education has emerged as a cost-effective alternative or treatment supplement for coparenting conflict and children’s behavior problems. Parent education programs provide psychoeducation and skills development for separated and divorced families across a wide array of topics and in a variety of formats. Distinguishing between the dozens of available programs and determining which best meets each family’s needs could be daunting. This chapter provides an overview of research on coparenting education programs and identifies several critical elements and factors for consideration in selecting a program. These elements and factors include authority of program developers, evidence-informed approaches, costs, accessibility, measures of compliance, evidence of effectiveness, general and special topics, and instructional design.
