Yes, the ‘CoOperate’ app is a companion tool for the course, offering additional resources, communication tools, and a way of creating some separation to calm the communication with your ex-partner. It can be used by families that haven’t done the course, but we believe it will assist you so much that we provide 6 months free access to encourage participants to try it out themselves.
