Unlike celebrity marriages such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s, most unions don’t end in “conscious uncoupling.”
To empower everyday families to build positive communication skills after a divorce or separation, OSU Extension Family and Consumer Sciences created the Successful Co-Parenting Program (SCP).
In November, SCP achieved Signature Program status – allowing it to expand to all 88 Ohio counties.
Led by Carmen Irving, an OSU Extension educator, the program’s curriculum helps co-parents minimize the negative effects of divorce on children. SCP also decreases the number of children referred to child protection agencies due to divorce conflicts.
