Parenting After Parting


When parents separate, it’s more important than ever to parent together. We know that co-parenting can be hard, particularly when you are going through divorce and separation. Our Parenting After Parting course is designed to help you through the challenges you may face.

Overview →

There are crucial things we should do (and should avoid doing) if we are to get our children through family breakdown in good shape. Issues such as housing, finance, maintenance and so on become so much easier to resolve when there is an early focus on the needs of the children. However, with so many things going on it is hardly surprising that too often the needs of the children are managed less well than they could be.

As part of our well-being hub and family support services, we offer a Parenting After Parting course which focuses on helping you to help your children through divorce and separation. The course covers what to say to children about separation, how children can be affected when parents split up, how to help children to manage grief and loss constructively and how to establish a parenting relationship with your ex-partner.

Our Parenting After Parting course is an online, e-learning course with a range of materials (including videos) supported by a one-hour bespoke coaching session hosted by Elaine Halligan of The Parent Practice on Zoom.

We have designed our Parenting After Parting course to be as flexible as possible, mindful of the fact that parents have very busy lives. The e-learning materials will be available to access at any time for up to a year. The live coaching session can be arranged to suit your diary.

Key features of our Parenting After Parting Course include:

A three module online e-learning course with a sixty minute bespoke coaching session with Elaine Halligan.

The course notes and videos are accessible from the time you sign up, so you don’t have to wait.

The Parenting After Parting online course has the advantage of being easily accessible, very flexible and avoids the necessity of travelling or booking childcare.

The course is designed for parents to draw specific attention to the impact of divorce and separation on their children.

Together with the bespoke coaching session, it’s an ideal way to prepare yourselves and the children for the various changes ahead.

More information on our Parenting After Parting course can be found here. It is priced at £340 per person (including VAT) for the e-learning materials and the one-hour bespoke coaching session.

A Family Court judge commented about the workshops:

“Every parent should be required to attend one of these”

Feedback from those who have attended the workshops includes:

“It reinforced my belief that the child comes first”

“The workshop at FLiP was brilliant – and Alex and I were on much better terms by the end of the first session”

“It was good to know that I am not the only one going through this, that I am not alone”

“It strengthened my understanding of the situation”

“I’ve made a conscious effort to improve communication with my estranged wife”

“To be in a room with other parents who are in the same situation was good for us – we felt less alone”

“I am so pleased that I did the Parenting after Parting course. I separated from my now ex-husband over four years ago and at that time, looked at various books and online resources to do with co-parenting and supporting children with divorce. They were helpful in addressing issues at that point but it would have been even better to have Elaine there to teach, guide and advise in a more personal way”
