Parenting Co-ordination courses

PARENTING COORDINATION 

What is Parenting Coordination? 
 
Parenting coordination is a multi-disciplinary and child-focused dispute resolution process that helps families to implement parenting agreements and child arrangements. 
 
The Parenting Coordinator (or ‘PC’) works with the family to resolve disputes efficiently. They do this by educating parents about children’s needs, helping them to reach consensus where possible and, if necessary and with the prior agreement of the parties, making decisions on disputes. The process is designed to minimise the levels of conflict to which the child is exposed and to assist the parents to find new ways of co-parenting their child going forward. 
 
The rapid growth of Parenting Coordination across the United States, Canada and South Africa represents a dramatic development in family dispute resolution. It has seen enthusiastic uptake and is now established as a main-stream option for many struggling families in those countries where it is practiced. For practitioners working in England and Wales, the introduction of a model of Parenting Coordination tailored to our jurisdiction represents an exciting opportunity to learn new skills and to develop a challenging and remunerative area of business. 
Train to become a Parenting Coordinator 
 
The FLiP Faculty Parenting Coordination model has been developed by leading DR professionals in line with the Guidelines for Parenting Coordination produced by the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC) and with reference to established training courses delivered in Ontario, Canada and in the Western Cape of South Africa. However, the model has been modified to take into account the legal, social and cultural context of family conflict in this jurisdiction. 
 
The course is composed of 7 modules, split into 4 two-day sessions, any of which may be attended by those working in the family law sector as ‘stand alone’ courses. 
 
The modules involve a combination of pre-course reading material, lectures, group discussion and role plays. 
 
Delegates on the full course will be subject to continuous assessment throughout the course, and, at the conclusion, will be required to submit a written determination, based upon a case study, for assessment. Successful completion of all 7 course modules and written assessment will entitle appropriately qualified delegates to entry on the register of FLiP Faculty Approved Parenting Coordinators.  
 
The course modules, are as follows: 
What is Parenting Coordination and how does it work? 
Parenting Coordination - Techniques and Issues 
The Child in Parenting Coordination 
The Parenting Coordination Legal Framework 
Dealing with High Conflict Parents 
Family Dynamics in Separation and Divorce
