So what is Parent Coordination exactly? Parenting coordination is an intervention using methods of psychotherapy and alternative dispute resolution to help divorced or separated parents navigate how to effectively co-parent their children. Goals of parenting coordination include educating parents on parenting techniques and how to make decisions that are in the best interests of children, assisting parents in implementing effective modes of communication between them, and helping parents modify behaviors to circumvent the children’s exposure to conflict.
