Research book or monograph (author)


Other information
AbstractThis report details an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Hong Kong Family Welfare Society’s (HKFWS) co-parenting and parenting coordination services, which are largely informed by the Cooperative Parenting Institute’s (CPI) model. The evaluation followed a mixed-methods approach that integrated a quantitative study as well as a qualitative study. Whereas the quantitative study involved examining the effectiveness of the services, the qualitative study entailed investigating the factors that facilitate and hinder the effectiveness of the services, as well as identifying areas for their modification, innovation, and expansion. Results of the study found that services provided based on the CPI model (i.e. intensive CPI-based services) effectively established a co-parenting pattern that minimised antagonism between parents. Inter-parental conflict and the triangulation of children therein decreased significantly, as did parental communication, despite no simultaneous increase in mutual support between parents. According to parents, their children’s wellbeing had improved, while according to children, their intimacy with their non-resident parents also improved.
