Getting it Right - Positive Separated Parenting

Training to support separated parents navigating their contact arrangements for their children, using mindful resources and assertiveness techniques.

This course is delivered by Little Big Butterfly a community interest company dedicated in empowering communities to create positive change and promote well-being.

The course is intended to provide parents with the skills and knowledge to ensure that negotiations, decisions and agreements made regarding children and contact arrangements are done with the central focus being on the child. It is an ideal start point prior to, or to work alongside mediation, which is the recommended approach to resolve contact arrangement/parenting difficulties and avoids costly legal fees which are currently approximately £6,000 to £10,000 plus VAT in total per case.

"This course made me think about the impact to my child in my situation and how I can change my behaviour and approaches" (participant)
"I wish I had attended this training years ago, it would have saved a lot of diffcult situations between me and my ex partner and saved me a lot of money in legal fees" (participant)
"Since attending this course, me and my children's mother have gone on to attend couples therapy with a better understanding of how our relationship affects our children" (participant)

The course is delivered by two experienced facilitators (male and female) who are trained in couples therapy, mindfulness and assertiveness practice and have direct experience of family court processes.
