Due to the current restrictions and social distancing rules all programmes are delivered remotely via online platforms such as Skype, Zoom or MS Teams. Delivery is in small groups of up to four parents and run by experienced facilitators.
The Separated Parents Information Programme (SPIP) is a course which helps you understand how to put your children first while you are separating, even though you may be in dispute with your child’s other parent. The course helps parents learn the fundamental principles of how to manage conflict and difficulties – including how to put this in practice. You will not attend the same session as your ex-partner.
The programme encourages you to take steps for yourselves; this may include developing agreements that do not need court intervention. The Programme will give you ideas and signpost ways in which you can get help outside court. The majority of parents that go on the course find it very helpful.
