Parents love their children and want the best for them. However, after separation, parenting often gets much tougher.
Keeping Kids in Mind is a 5 week course for separated parents who are experiencing on- going conflict. The course is designed to:
~ assist parents to see through their children’s eyes the experience of parental separation.
~ develop greater understanding about how to support children following family separation
Commencing Monday, 20 October 2014 - 6pm at CCSS in Blacktown, we invite you to share this event with people you know will benefit from this fabulous program.

Death can strike at any age; though an accident, illness or act of violence and not everyone left behind fits the stereotypical image of the elderly widow dressed in black. Sister Eileen Quade is a counsellor specialising in bereavement support who joined us to discuss a new program specifically targeted towards people under 50 experiencing the grief of losing a partner.
