Parenting After Separation (PAS)

In-person Parenting After Separation

Parenting After Separation (PAS) is a free three-hour workshop that helps parents make informed decisions about their separation which consider their children’s best interests. The program is mandatory for separating parents in some BC communities. 

Topics include:

  • The impact of separation on you and your children
  • How to help your family adjust to change
  • Strategies to help your family adjust to change
  • Effective ways you and your children’s other parent can communicate
  • How to keep your children out of the middle of conflict
  • Options for resolving family disputes, including mediation, counseling and the court process
  • How the child support guidelines are applied
  • Resources in the community for parents and children

Resources for the Parenting After Separation program include a Parent's Handbook, which is available in multiple languages, as well as a Facilitator's Guide.

Schedules for PAS and PAS Finances.
