With thanks to Phil and Sarah from family space for their presentation of their new project:
RESOLVE is a new programme for separated parents or parents who are going through separation, that is run by Family Space, a voluntary organisation working with families and the Cheltenham Child Contact Centre.
The overall aim of RESOLVE is to create a brighter outlook for children who are experiencing the effects of conflict that result from their parents separating.
The outcome will be a decision by the parent on a new approach to the ex-partner that they believe can work for them and result in a brighter outlook for their child/ children.
RESOLVE will help a parent to decide their own positive steps towards establishing a business like relationship with their ex-partner that also offers an alternative to going to court and to mediation.
The support will be in the form of one to one sessions with RESOLVE adopting a coaching model. This will entail listening to a parent and encouraging them to give their description of the relationship breakdown and to identify the options open to them to bring about positive change.
RESOLVE can work even if only one parent chooses to be involved as the cycle of argument that can exist between two parents in conflict can be broken by a changed position or perspective by that one parent.
There are no cost barriers so RESOLVE is open to any parent who would like to take part.
