CPR has conducted numerous studies related to child access (visitation).  CPR was a leader in completing some of the first studies on mediation in child access disputes.  Early work by CPR in California, Colorado, Connecticut, and Minnesota encouraged many courts around the nation to develop mediation services as a alternative to litigation in family disputes.  CPR has also conducted evaluations of programs designed to enforce visitation orders.
