Sorry, this course is now full.

When parents separate, one of the biggest challenges in the early days is working out how to tell their children about the separation and what is happening. This course has been designed to give parents the information, vocabulary and confidence to tell their children this challenging news.

Telling a child you are separating or divorcing is never going to be easy. For most parents it is a daunting task, but one that needs to be undertaken. This course has been put together by our mediation team, which includes systemic therapists, teachers and parental coordinators. The course looks at how to create a plan and some of the common pitfalls. 

The course will combine presentations, open questions and open discussion time to enable the small group (no more than 6 people) to explore each of the following topics:

  • Communication approaches.
  • Creating a plan.
  • How open should you be with your child?
  • Understanding how children will perceive the news.
  • Ongoing dialogue with and around the child. 

The course runs for approximately 1 hour - and is delivered online by one of our expert mediators.
