Abstract (Summary)

Based on how current divorce parenting education classes are structured, it is known that current programs are being evaluated for effectiveness. Programs are beings supported and implemented based on research, but there is still a lot of variability depending on what program is used and state legislature. As long as a program meets the individual’s state mandated requirements, it can be taken for credit towards meeting the court’s mandates. Studies have also evaluated demographics behind what makes a successful program. However, a nationwide study has not been conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of a multitude of divorcing parent education classes and demographics of participants. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the mode of presentation, activities included, and participant demographics to see what factors determine a parent’s Attitude, Likelihood, and Knowledge of adaptive co-parenting after taking a divorce parenting education class.
