The Shared Parenting Scotland online training site is now open, and for an initial period all training courses can be taken free of charge, thanks to funding from the Scottish Government’s Wellbeing Fund and the Community Response, Recovery and Resilience Fund.
The site is here – just use the Coupon SPSFREE to get free access to any of the courses (or pay if you want to support our work).
The first two courses on their brand new training platform are Communicating in Challenging Times and Stress Awareness. They aim to develop skills that will help participants make the best and avoid the worst of relationship breakdown.
Communicating in Challenging Times looks at the verbal and non-verbal ways we communicate and how to remain calm in communication – an important skill for difficult situations like working out child care arrangements in the new situation of living separately.
Stress Awareness identifies the adverse effects of stress on any one of us and how it affects decision-making and communication and the common tendency to react first and think later. It teaches participants how to destress and relax, as well as identify potentially stressful situations and develop skills of remaining calm.2 likes
