Co-parenting plays a key role in children's outcomes when parents dissolve their intimate relationship. As a result, educators have developed divorce education programs to support healthy co-parenting and parenting practices among parents going through the process of separation and divorce. Despite much progress, challenges remain concerning how to measure the impact of divorce education programs, limitations in research and evaluation study design, and development and delivery of programming tailored to unique contexts. In this article, we aim to provide scholars and practitioners an overview of common practices related to divorce education. Additionally, we examine promising areas for growth to encourage scholarship that can move beyond describing common practices toward recommending best practices that increase positive outcomes for families who experience divorce.
