Teens Coping with Parents Separation/Divorce

Divorce is extremely stressful on all family members, but especially on children.

The day-to-day stability they once had is replaced with the unknown of what's going to happen to their parents, and to them, in the future. This can lead to a wide variety of emotions including anxiety, stress, fear and depression. Children might feel responsible for the break-up or feel alone and unwanted. And some may react with anger and hostility towards one or both parents based on a sense of betrayal. They may shun attempts at maintaining contact, which could potentially have a long-lasting impact on relationships into the adult years.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-based techniques have proven to be very effective in helping teens manage emotions and their negative effects. Our online, self-delivered Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)-based 7-session educational program teaches teens techniques that can be used to help ease anxiety, fear, stress, and other emotions associated with drastic changes in home life.

The COPE 7-Session Online Program can be accessed from PCs, Macs, tablets and smart phones, and each session can be repeated as many times as desired during the year-long subscription.

This program was designed to be delivered over a 7-week period of time.

* Sessions cannot be purchased individually. The program is accessible for one year from the date of purchase.


The online, self-administered 7-session program is a self-help, cognitive-behavioral skills-building intervention educational program only and is not meant to diagnose or provide treatment for a particular disease or illness. The goal of this educational program is to teach children and teens how to recognize negative thought patterns, and provide cognitive behavioral skills and techniques that can be useful in modifying negative thinking.

Please note that this is a "single-user" class, so each individual user must register for and purchase a separate program.

In addition, since this is an "interactive" class requiring students to input information, each online user will require a different email address and password as a "unique identifier" in order to maintain confidentiality.

Note: At this time, the online course is only available to people who reside in the U.S. and Canada and are 13-years of age and older.
