I’m looking for information about the Parenting After Separation program

The Parenting After Separation (PAS) program is a free, three-hour information session offered at various locations in BC to help parents who are separating.

Good starting points include:

  • The Parenting After Separation Program brochure describes what the sessions are and what you will learn if you attend.
  • The Families Change website, from the Justice Education Society of BC, features a comprehensive Online Parenting After Separation course that covers the same topics as the in-person workshops.
  • The Parenting After Separation Handbook for Parents was developed by the Justice Education Society of BC and the provincial government for use in the Parenting After Separation program. The handbook, which is available for download, helps separating parents focus on the needs of their children through development of a parenting plan and positive communications.
  • The Finances After Separation Program, from the Justice Education Society, is designed to complement the Parenting After Separation program. The focus of this workshop is on helping separating families with their finances, and resources include a Parent's Workbook.
