These programmes are designed to help parents learn more about the challenges of post-separation parenting. The course encourages parents to look at range of affects separation has on children, including the impact of ongoing conflict.
The programme aims to provide advice and support on how children in this position can best be helped and parents find themselves enabled to take steps towards finding their own family solutions. Most parents that go on the course find it helpful. Former partners attend different SPIP sessions, but it is important that both attend.
The course is not counselling or mediation, and personal circumstances and issues are not discussed. The course is not suitable for children, so childcare will need to be sought by the participant.
Separated or Divorced? Find it difficult to talk to your ex?
