Parenting Through Separation

Before you go to FDR Mediation, we recommend that you complete a Parenting Through Separation course. This is a free parenting information programme that has been used by thousands of families to help deal with separation.

The programme is administered by the Ministry of Justice and is usually broken down into two sessions of about two hours (these may be held on different days or on the same day).

The sessions offer a mix of advice, discussion and practical examples, with the aim of helping you to manage conflict and help your children through separation. You are not expected to attend with your ex-partner and the provider will ensure they are booked on a different course date.

To find out more about Parenting Through Separation, see the Ministry of Justice website.
