Separated Parents Information Programme available for free

SEPARATED PARENTS INFORMATION PROGRAMME is now available to all for free, 

The Separated Parents Information Programme (SPIP) is a course designed to help separated parents, grandparents and other family members become clear about what their children need most from them and learn the fundamental principles of how to manage conflict and difficulties.

SPIP has been running very successfully since 2008, but until recently, it has only been available for clients who are involved in court proceedings.  Now it is available to anyone for free!  Book soon to take advantage of a free place.

Most parents attending the course find it extremely helpful – here’s what some parents have said:-

“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 where conflict is minimal”

“The trainers have displayed in depth understanding of the emotional effects of stress 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 the children”

“Excellent presentation.  Very well prepared and made the day relaxed.  A lot better than expected”
