Divorce Seminars - Evaluating Them

Madison County has its Children in the Middle seminar, other counties have similar programs. When first proposed many attorneys here questioned whether the program actually would have any effect. I think many of us still wonder about this.

For those interested in reading studies on the effectiveness of these type of programs, I found The Impact of an Educational Seminar for Divorcing Parents Results from a National Survey of Family Court Judges and Impact of Kids First Seminar for Divorcing Parents A Three-Year Follow-Up.

That these two articles are over decade old leave me wondering about their worth, but at least we know that the social scientists have been studying the issue.
