FIRST AID FOR SEPARATING PARENTS 

EVENT SUMMARY 
This half day course, held in the afternoon, is part of a full day event focusing on how we can better support clients. 
 
It is an introductory course inviting delegates to reflect upon how they can engage with parents who are facing separation and develop the insight and skills to help clients to deliver what their children need from them as a family changes its shape. 

Speaker - Maura McKibbin 

Maura is a mediator and collaborative lawyer dedicated to keeping families out of court wherever possible and encouraging those who separate to do so with care and dignity. She aims to inject a sense of structure into the potential chaos of family transition with enough information and guidance to empower clients to find their own solutions without feeling overwhelmed.
