Two Families Now was developed using the actual experiences of parents in hundreds of classes and focus groups, and key contributions from members of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts. Two Families Now is an evidence-based online course which has been proven to be effective in clinical trials. This research led to an engaging course that has been successfully commercialized and is now approved in courts nationwide.
Trifoia partnered with Dr. Laura Backen Jones, a developmental psychologist and expert in family and marital counseling, to produce a mobile-friendly course covering parenting transition, stress reduction, communication, and family routines. The course includes:
A randomized controlled trial conducted by our research department showed participants were very satisfied with the course, with each mean satisfaction scale receiving over 95% of favorable ratings. Eighty-five percent of parents said that the program motivated them “quite a bit” to “very much” to improve their relationship with their co-parent. Seventy-six percent of parents indicated that they would make changes in their parenting based on what they learned.
