Separated Parent Information Programme

Most people agree that parental conflict is not good for children, however you may feel that there is very little that you can do about. However there is help available to you. Many parents feel like this before they attend the programme but after attending they are pleased with the outcome having found it to be really interesting and worthwhile.

It is not the same as a standard parenting course. It is designed to help you to increase your knowledge about the impact of separation or divorce on children. Ideas will be offered to help you reduce conflict and to improve communication. It can be used as a preparation for mediation.

It is delivered to mixed groups of parents in one four hour session with a comfort break. Separated couples do not attend the same course.

This is what other parents have said after attending the group:

"The right thing for my children, and myself - in that order."

"I know this is how I need to be for my children."

"I'd recommend the course to anyone who has separated from their partner, with children - even when conflict is minimal."

"The trainers have displayed in depth understanding of the matters involving parent children relationship."

"Great, clear, concise information and opportunity to hear other people's experience and ask questions to improve my children's emotional environment in the separation process."

"I found this course very informative and it certainly changed my outlook and views (Brilliant)."

"A very useful course, helped understand both parties situation and how we can make the separated process better for children."

"Excellent presentations. Very well prepared and made the day relaxed. A lot better than expected."

If you're interested in attending the cost for each person is £150.00. For more information please call 01268 286577.


Mediation is about making positive agreements so that you can move on with your life.
