Researchers receive grant to develop online toolkit for co-parenting after divorce

College of Education: Jim Sampson

Dr. James Sampson

A grant from the Vandermark Foundation and our distinguished alumnus, Peter Scanlon (Ph.D. ’79 Counseling Psychology), will support a collaborative project between faculty here in the College of Education, the College of Social Work, and the College of Communication & Information with assistance from the Film School.

The $250,000 grant will be used to create an online toolkit designed to foster healthy co-parenting in families of divorce. It will be available at no cost to the multitude of families who experience divorce annually, as well as to family members, mental health professionals and lawyers who support these families through the divorce process.

“The entire FSU community, the state and families nationally will benefit from this extraordinary gift and FSU’s commitment to excellence through intercollege collaboration over the next several years,” said James Sampson, associate dean in the College of Education.

The online site will launch this fall and be available nationwide.
