ABSTRACT

This study is a program evaluation of the Kids First program, an eight-week psychoeducation program, on parents and children who have experienced a divorce and/or separation. This study was conducted to assess the usefulness of specific program interventions as it relates to parental insight, co-parenting, and child adjustment. A descriptive analysis was conducted to examine results of the evaluations. Results indicated over 85% of the sample rated program satisfaction as moderately or very valuable, suggesting parents gained some knowledge and saw value in the program. Results also endorsed 95% of parents moderately or highly valued the effectiveness of the program’s presentation methods, suggesting the program presented material in an effective, comprehensible manner. It was concluded that a majority parents reported increased knowledge of effective co-parenting strategies and of personal insight/responsibility following program participation. However, results were inconsistent regarding parents’ communication with their child and awareness of their child’s adjustment post-intervention. These findings suggest future research should be studied to fully identify and address the needs of the children and parents as they correlate with each other.
