The Mediation Company promotes a Post Separation course called the “New Ways for Families - Parenting without Conflict” course, designed for parenting under stress. It covers issues facing parents who are separating. It will teach you new skills to manage your emotions, to reduce conflict and to improve your co-parenting relationship with your former partner. The course will also provide you with information about the different developmental stages of children and about the effect of divorce and conflict on children. The course is provided through our alliance with Interact Support, a not-for-profit established to reduce and resolve family conflict.
The course is unique to any other Post-Separation Parenting course offered in Australia in that it allows clients access to a number of trained Certified Coaches throughout Australia. The Mediation Company provides private one-one-one coaching sessions for this course. Our Certified Coaches have been specifically trained to empower you to manage and reduce conflict and form stronger relationships. The coaching sessions are affordable and will give you important life skills that are simple and easy to learn. You can teach your new skills to your children and you can apply your new skills to all aspects of your lives, including your home, work and relationships with family and friends.
