Parenting through separation

SCHEDULE OF COURSES IS BELOW...PLEASE REFER TO THAT BEFORE COMPLETING A REGISTRATION FORM.

Plunket provides the Parenting Through Separation (PTS) Programme in Northland, parts of Auckland, parts of Waikato/Taupo District and the West Coast of the South Island.

This programme helps parents focus on the needs of their children and how parents can communicate better with each other and with their children. It helps them understand what their children's needs are and how to make the best arrangements for them when families are separating. As a result, the programmes help many children through a stressful and difficult time in their lives. 

Please Note: Separating partners DO NOT attend the course together.

The course consists of two, two-hour long sessions or one four hour session.

PTS MOJ Information:-
