Studies show that the children of divorced parents who successfully co-parent their children after divorce exhibit the same levels of achievement and emotional health as the children of married parents. By contrast, these studies also show dramatically worse results for children of divorce whose parents do not co-parent them.
For the sake of the children, as well as for the good of society as a whole, it is essential that we find ways to encourage successful co-parenting after divorce. Recognizing this, most states actually require that completed “Co-Parenting Plans” be filed in connection with every divorce proceeding. Unfortunately, these plans are usually merely boilerplate to meet a requirement, and they do not serve their intended purpose.
Arbinger has created a whole initiative around co-parenting that prepares and equips divorced parents to successfully co-parent their children. Because Arbinger’s work gets to the heart of issues that divide people, our co-parenting program makes it possible even for those who have suffered through a difficult divorce to come together in a productive way for the sake of the children.

Have you ever wondered why it is so hard to change, both yourself and others?
We are sometimes so close to the action we can’t see the real issues and challenges that are hindering change.
An Arbinger coach can help you examine your life and relationships to see whether you are unwittingly perpetuating problems and hindering positive change.
What is coaching?
Coaching is a series of conversations in which we focus on specific goals you want to achieve. With the help of your coach, you will learn to identify the deeper issues that were impeding progress. You can expect new insights, openness, and deep and lasting change as you apply Arbinger principles in your day-to-day living. A change of heart changes everything.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How does coaching work?
Coaching is a series of conversations about what you want to achieve. Once you’re matched with your coach, you’ll have regular 30-minute conversations by phone. In each session your coach will check in with you on your progress, ask questions to help you learn more, and help you create a plan in order to take action. You will revisit your coaching goals periodically, so that you can celebrate progress and identify any new goals that arise.
Q. What can I expect when working with a coach?
You can expect conversations with someone deeply interested in your life, a partnership that will support you as you make concrete changes. You can expect hard questions, new insights, and a sense of accomplishment. You can expect better relationships, more peace, and a greater engagement in life.
Q. How does coaching help improve my relationship or reach my goals?
Here’s our assumption about you: you’ve at least learned the basics about Arbinger from our books or courses, but you find you can’t quite make all the changes to your life that you had hoped to make. Our coaches listen for where you might be stuck, and guide you towards unexpected solutions that include healing and improving relationships. If you aren’t yet familiar with Arbinger language and principles, your coach can support your process.
Anatomy of Peace course by phone
An 8 week phone course to help you apply the principles learned in Arbinger’s bestselling book, The Anatomy of Peace.
Laura, an intelligent mom and wife, reading The Anatomy of Peace nods yes as it makes such sense to her. “I get it,” she says as her son looks at her and another battle ensues. “How is it that I can get it and find such difficulty living it in this moment?”
George wrote, “I read the book and understand it. However, when I am rushed, impatient or preoccupied I have trouble maintaining a heart at peace. During those times, I have found a greater tendency to blame others and feel rightfully so.”
The Anatomy of Peace course by phone provides the help you need in applying the principles found in the book. It offers weekly dialogue, coaching and practice to help you acquire a deeper ‘heart at peace.’ The 8-week Anatomy of Peace Group Coaching Course will help you:
- Acquire and apply solutions you never expected
- Develop a heart at peace
- Make real, noticeable improvements in relationships
Learn how to address problems and conflicts that exist at work, in the family or community
“As I have learned to locate and listen to my heart in the Anatomy of Peace course, I am shocked at the amount of time I spend at war, cozy with my self-justifying images of importance, value, rightness and being seen in a variety of impossible ways. I am learning to live more in the moment, trust my heart and be curious about other people.” - RH
“There is great value in The Anatomy of Peace Group Coaching Course, even if a participant has taken another Arbinger course. Since it presents things in a different context and offers new insights, my understanding of the principles has deepened… Something I really liked about the Anatomy of Peace Course was that it offered some real answers and approaches to dealing with the issues of self-deception and having a heart at war. I also found great value in being with a new group of participants who asked different questions and offered unique issues to discuss because of what was happening in their lives.” ~ Arbinger Client
I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, how very blessed I am to be in The Anatomy of Peace class. I have long considered myself to be a reasonably Peaceful person and, still and yet again, I’m learning so much. I’m seeing that it’s practice, practice, practice. That any form of self-aimed frustration, disgust, shame, etc. is only more heart at war. And how very difficult it is to serve others well when any of that is going on. Wow. The very best part is discovering how to consciously shift from a heart at war to a heart at peace. I see that requires practice too. A lot of it. Whoohoo! I’m willing.

“Being in the From Pain to Peace course has been absolutely transformational! It was such a courageous and safe place for all of us to explore. The exercises both in class and as homework were amazing at showing me deeper and deeper levels of resistance I had to responding to my son in the ways my heart was sensing I should. It’s been over a month since we completed our final class and I have been able to sustain my out of the box space with my son for the most part. And with this new foundation, I seem to be shedding other boxes with other relationships as well. This is such a huge gift in my life!” ~ SD
“In the From Pain to Peace course I had a wonderful experience. It created a safe place for me to be vulnerable and explore my box to and have the real awareness that I was coming into every encounter with, ‘I am going to fix it (them).’ I brought it in a physical way where I was pushing people away. I discovered what it was to be ‘truly responsive’ and understand another person’s fears and needs. This course was a way to experience community as well.” GS ~ Heart Surgeon
