ADEPT is a co-parenting skills training program that helps parents put
an end to conflicts,
poor communication, and
ongoing litigation associated with the break-up of the nuclear family.
By reducing the level of
conflict in the newly formed bi-nuclear family, the children are at
lower risk to experience the
detrimental effects associated with the division of the nuclear family.
ADEPT has been an
educational and communication skills training program offered through
Oakland County 6th Circuit
Court / Family Division since 2000 and has been provided by DMM
Education Manager Robert Hack for over ten years.

children. During the eight weeks of the ADEPT program, co-parents are
educated about the risks of on-going conflict on the psychological and
educational adjustment of children.

are encouraged to take responsibility for the communication problems
that exist with their co-parent and to learn more successful methods of
communicating and resolving conflicts.
