ARPCC mission is to educate the specialists how to stimulate the non-adversarial dispute resolution procedures, when families with children end-up divorcing or separating.

We are involved in formal and informal training for the lawyers, mediators, psychologists, judges, and child protection staff. Non-adversarial dispute resolution is known as reducing the parental conflict trough the strategic use of mediation and of the parental plan. Ultimately, those procedures means that, increasingly fewer children will end-up losing the contact with one of the parents, as a result of the couple separation.

We are also involved in changes of the legislation referring child protection and in procedures that led to jurisprudence unification.
 For example we are co-authors of the Law257/2013 and of several other bills that are in the Parliamentary Circuit.

At this time the statistics are particularly dark, although some steps have been taken towards a better protection of the children involved in divorce or separation conflicts. In Europe half of the children who are born in a relationship end-up with their parents separating before they reach 10. Half of those children end-up, in less than three years after divorce or separation, losing any significant contact with the non-resident parent and with the entire extended family of that parent (uncles, aunts, cousins, grandparents). So, about one in four children of Romania and Europe end-up as "semi-orphan".

Internationally recognized studies prove that those children under-perform, on all well being indicators, versus the children who have a chance to have both parents actively involved in their lives, despite the divorce or separation of their parents.
