Parenting After Separation and Focus on Communication in Separation FAQs

How do I register?

You can register on our website or by calling us at 780.413.9805.

What if I need to cancel or reschedule the course?

You can cancel or reschedule your registration on our website, by sending an email to pas.focis@the-family-centre.com or by calling 780.413.9805.

Can I attend with my ex-partner?

No. To ensure the safety and comfort of all participants, separating or divorcing parents are not permitted to attend the same session. There are no exceptions. Ex-partners must register in different sessions (you will be asked for your partner’s name when registering).

Do I have to take both nights in the same week?

It is preferred that you would take both nights in the same week, but you don’t need to.  The information presented in the Monday evening session is considered to be part 1, so you should attend the Monday session first. 

Do I need to bring anything to the course?

You will receive a participant manual when you arrive. Please bring a pen.

Can I bring my children?

No, children are not allowed at the course, and we do not offer childcare.

Can I bring a support person?

Yes, but the support person must also register for the course.

Can I take the course online instead of coming in person?

Parenting After Separation is also offered as an online course by Alberta Resolution and Court Administration Services.

Parenting after Separation High Conflict and Focus on Communication in Separation are not offered as online courses.

What do I get after I complete the course?

When you have attended the entire course, you will receive a certificate of completion by email.

How do I replace a lost certificate?

Certificates are sent by email. If you have misplaced it, please email us at pas.focis@the-family-centre.com for a new certificate.

We are only able to replace your certificate if you took the course in-person in Edmonton.

If you took the PAS online course, please contact Alberta Resolution and Court Administration Services directly at plei.rcas@gov.ab.ca, or submit a question through their website.

What’s the difference between Parenting After Separation, Parenting After Separation for Families in High Conflict, and Focus on Communication in Separation?

Parenting After Separation is for all parents going through a divorce or separation.

Parenting After Separation High Conflict is a course available to all parents who have already completed the Parenting After Separation course and are experiencing more intense, long-lasting conflict during their separation.

In the Focus on Communication in Separation workshop, you will learn how to communicate effectively while parenting apart.
