The clouds are parting

The clouds are parting is the theme for day four of Family Mediation Week.

It aims to help show separating couples to see a way through the mediation process, offering a structure and a clear pathway.

Throughout the day blogs will be released which you can find on the Family Mediation Week blog page

Among them is a helpful article from Marcia Mediation called Find the light again with a clear action plan and an article called The clouds are parting – starting to see a way through, by Philippa Johnson, chair of the FMA, which has organised the week.

In the video section you will see Bill Hewlett from Civilised Separations discuss how a child will feel after speaking to a mediator and Ashley Palmer, co-author of The Handover Book, talks about the book and how it can be used to enable parents to co-parent effectively.
