For learners, the flexible training comprises of 12 online modules which will take about 12-15 hours to complete at their own pace. The course features information, videos and role play, as well as a personal journal where learners can document their journey. It provides a skills-based, “no blame, no shame” online educational program for parents in divorce or separation who could benefit from learning new communication, emotion management, and problem-solving skills.

Shared Parenting Scotland have recruited a number of Scottish coaches including experienced solicitors, family therapists and other professionals whose one-to-one interaction with each learner at three separate points in their training gives New Ways For Families® its distinctiveness.

New Ways For Families® isn’t mediation. Even if both parents sign up they will be allocated a different coach. It’s not legal advice. The training promotes greater levels of respect, empathy and attention from its learners. The primary goal is to teach parents the skills necessary to effectively resolve co-parenting disagreements while remaining calm and protecting their children from the conflict. The course may be voluntary, recommended, or mandated by courts or other professionals.
