This holistic program aims to assist parents and families who wish to avoid or who have experienced conflict or
difficulties in facilitating post-separation parenting arrangements. The program emphasises the rights children
have to pursue and enjoy a relationship with both parents and the benefits children gain from this experience.
We highlight the responsibilities both parents have to their children and of the need, therefore to work together
in a respectful manner to optimise the best outcomes for the child’s welfare and future development.
