What is Mums and Dads Forever?

Mums and Dads Forever focusses on assisting families to reduce conflict and develop more positive ways to communicate so that children are not "caught in the middle".

  • The separation process
  • Managing emotions
  • Conflict management and effective communication
  • Impact of separation and conflict on children
  • Setting boundaries
  • Understanding oneself and own and children's needs

Parents do not attend the group with their former partners.

The program also offers short term individual counselling to parents who have attended or are attending the group program. The counsellors are highly qualified, professional staff who are experienced in working with families and have a good knowledge of family separation. 

There are some variations of the delivery of groups to parents whose work commitments make it challenging to attend on a weekly basis.
