The Separated Parents Information Programme  A one-off four hour course which helps parents understand separation from a child’s point of view and learn the fundamental principles of how to manage and reduce the impact of conflict on their children. Parents can refer themselves or are court-ordered to attend. You can find your local SPIP provider here.
