The PAS Parent Handbook is a companion resource to the PAS In-Person Workshop (as well as the online course). It provides helpful information and practical worksheets.
Children need love and support from parents throughout the separation – during the time of change and in the years after. This handbook focuses on the needs of children when parents separate and how you can help meet those needs.
The PAS Handbook can be used by married or unmarried couples, or parents who have never lived together. It is also useful for family and friends who have a relationship with the children.
