What is Kids in Focus?

At Relationships Australia NSW, we know that parents want the very best for their children. Family separation can be a difficult and painful time for everyone involved and can be particularly challenging for children.

Kids in Focus is a course designed by Relationships Australia NSW for separated parents who want to know more about supporting their children after separation. It is an important and essential component of our service, so it is necessary to complete Kids in Focus online or attend our Kids in Focus group sessions in person prior to attending family dispute resolution (mediation).

This course provides information and valuable insight about children’s experience of separation, and how they can be supported through this time.

Kids in Focus online has been developed to provide a flexible option for parents with busy schedules or who find it easier to learn in a self-paced environment online.

The course is interactive and usually takes an hour and a quarter to complete. It is suitable for most levels of literacy and can be done at a time and place that best suits you.
