Parenting After Separation - Focus on Kids

Parenting after Separation is a group for separated parents and carers who want to learn more about how they can best support their child through the process of family separation. The group will help you to learn more about managing your ongoing relationship with a former partner and to reduce conflict, whilst supporting your children during this transition.

Who is it for?

Parenting after Separation is a 6-session group (8-session at the Illawarra Centre) for separated parents and carers who want to learn more about how they can best support their child through the process of family separation.

What will it be like?

It is common for people to experience some initial anxiety over the prospect of participating in a group, and don’t know what to expect.  Being in a group offers a safe, supportive environment where you can share your thoughts and ideas, and learn from others experiencing similar challenges. Group participants say they feel less alone, isolated and judged, and that groups help in finding new solutions to dilemmas or problems.

Our groups typically have 8-12 participants. The group facilitators provide information, create discussion, allow for self-reflection, goal setting and learning new skills. You will experience a positive, practical approach that builds on strengths within yourself and in your relationships. Participating in a group program is an effective way to gain the confidence to turn negative habits and cycles into positive ones, manage strong emotions constructively and create the future you want.

Key outcomes

  • Clarify your problems.
  • Gain new perspectives.
  • Work through change.

How can it help me?

The group will help you to learn more about managing your ongoing relationship with a former partner and to reduce conflict, whilst supporting your children during this transition. You will be shown how to move beyond hate and blame of the other partner towards greater cooperation in order to meet the needs of your children.
