F.O.C.I.S Focus on Communication in Separation

Focus on Communication in Separation (FOCIS) is a six hour, skill-based course teaching parents how to communicate effectively while living apart. FOCIS aims to enhance the communication skills of parents, reduce parental conflict and improve long term outcomes for children and by the end of the course parents will be able to decrease tension and stress for themselves and their children. Parents attend separate groups so each parent has a safe place to learn and practice new communication and problem solving skills. A certificate of completion is provided at the end of the course.

Who is it for?

Separating or divorcing parents. Grandparents are welcome.
