Parenting After Separation

Parenting After Separation equips you to support your children through separation and move forward with co-parenting.

What is the Parenting After Separation program?

Parenting After Separation is designed for parents who have separated. The program supports parents to focus on what is best for their children and provides strategies for reducing conflict and co-parenting. Parents are encouraged to look after themselves and to get help and support as needed. This program is recognised by the Family Court of Australia and participants will be provided with a certificate upon completion.


Who can join the Parenting After Separation program?

Separated parents can choose to complete this program, or may have been recommended or ordered by the courts to do so. Separation may have happened recently or some time ago. Separated parents will not be placed in the same program together. An intake assessment will be conducted to ensure this program is the right fit for parents.


What can the Parenting After Separation program help me with?

Separation is a difficult time and we are here to help. This program will cover:

  • Navigating separation
  • Supporting your children
  • Resolving conflict
  • Protecting your children from conflict
  • Co-parenting strategies
  • Communication strategies
  • Taking care of yourself.


How long are the sessions?

Parenting After Separation is delivered face-to-face or online via zoom. A session can vary from 2 hours to a whole day, depending on the format.
