Divorce affects over 1.5 million children every year.  Although countless divorce education program exits to ameliorate the impact of divorce on child development, few have been able to document any impacts beyond short-term changes in knowledge or attitudes. Co-parenting for Resilience (CPR) is an innovative four-hour divorce education program that integrates psychotherapeutic theories into an educational format that Cooperative Extension Educators can deliver, and that has demonstrated empirical support for its effectiveness in producing behavior change. Workshop attendees will be exposed to: (a) the community-based process the developers took to address a pressing community issue; (b) innovative ways in which behavior change theory can be integrated into an educational format for use by Extension; (c) innovative evaluation protocols that promote buy-in from field staff and have been approved by an IRB; and (d) rigorous analytic strategies that assess for programmatic impacts.  Focus of the workshop will be on process rather than content. In this way, participants will be provided with actionable steps that will challenge them to map out and adopt principles of theory-based program development and rigorous evaluation strategies to their own content areas.  Innovative aspects of CPR and its documented impacts will be used to illustrate these principles.
