NB Seminar: Parenting After Separation – Helping Your Children Thrive

NB Seminar: Parenting After Separation – Helping Your Children Thrive

Saturday 21 June: 1.30 – 4.30pm
Brookvale NSW | Brookvale Community Centre

Are you a parent going through a divorce or separation?

This can be a really challenging time as you’re needing to make major changes in your life emotionally, physically, logistically and financially.   And as you’re searching for a way to deal with the separation,  you are wanting to create the best environment for your children.  The media is often full of miserable statistics about separation and people like to share dreadful stories, so many people struggle to see a positive future for all of the family.


But this is not everyone’s reality….

Would you like to ditch the doom & gloom and turn adversity into opportunity?!

This Workshop is designed to help you do just that.  We will help you navigate a pathway to creating a new family dynamic in a way that is empowering, respectful and fun.

Divided into 3 sections, Rebecca Burnett-Smith, Dina Cooper and Helena Mooney will focus on:

  • providing a roadmap to reach a positive outcome for your family
  • looking at how our emotions work and what we can do to manage them regardless of the circumstances
  • introducing play as a highly effective parenting tool to help children deal with the stress from separation, to improve behaviour, and to bring more fun to the whole family

With most people concentrating on the worst case scenarios, this workshop is designed to provide a strong message of hope – that it is possible to end up feeling you have the best of all worlds and that you are a better parent than you were before.

In this interactive, enjoyable workshop, you will:

  • mum & daughter cuddling_roundeddiscover the road map to a positive separation
