Parenting After Separation

Parenting After Separation


Parenting After Separation is a program designed to support separated parents and their children.

Relationship Matters delivers the program as a 1 day intensive course.

This is not a course to teach parents how to parent, but rather how to adapt to separated parenting and manage challenges such as parenting from a distance, conflict with a former partner and the children’s reactions and responses. The group allows plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Program Topics

The program aims to cover the following topics, some topics are not covered in the Intensive Program due to time constraints:

  • the pathways of separation
  • not partners – but still parents – styles of post-separation parenting
  • anger and conflict with your former partner
  • how to keep kids safe in the conflict and how to reduce the impact on everyone
  • children’s ages and stages and responses to separation

Program Duration & Fees


  • One Full Day (7 Hours)
  • $95 Full fee (no concession)
  • A short phone intake is required for entry into the intensive program (free of charge).

Comments from Previous Participants

  • I wish I had done this course earlier in my separation.
  • Must be used as a pathway for anyone going through separation.
  • I am grateful I came and learned. I will be a much better mother and a calmer ex-wife.
  • It was helpful to share with others, now I don’t feel so alone.
  • Being in a support group was very empowering – especially because they were non-judgemental.
