Focus on Communication in Separation (FOCIS) is a six-hour course teaching parents how to communicate effectively while parenting apart.
Reducing tension from conflicts will result in less stress for both you and your children. Ongoing conflict between parents can have a long-lasting negative effect on children of separation or divorce. Studies have shown that inter-parental anger and conflict are very strong indicators of how well children fare, both now and over the rest of their lives.
You can help your children by showing them that people don’t have to argue to get their ideas across.
This workshop is free. It is funded by the Government of Alberta.
