Enhancing Efficacious Parenting Coordination
Recent concerns have been raised that children's adjustment may not benefit if their parents complete a parenting coordination intervention where the goals were limited to establishing and implementing a disengaged, parallel model of coparenting. In many cases, avoiding or giving up on efforts to build and enhance cooperative coparenting through parenting coordination may not serve children's best interests. Given recent data indicating that some parents express dissatisfaction with the process and outcomes of parenting coordination, there is value in considering whether the ostensibly intractable subset of parents referred for parenting coordination could benefit from something more or different. We discuss two innovations: One seeking to strengthen individual parent readiness and esponsiveness, and the second bringing parents together in a child-centered team-building approach.
