Customer comment:

I’ve been presenting Separated Parent Information Programme for a few years now and I wanted to inform you of the positive comments from parents and our other SPIP trainers regarding the DVD.

I will be looking at how the DVD can be used as part of Family Group Conferencing – as it will be a most useful tool at a family meeting, when parents and extended family will be able to see things from a ‘child’s point of view’.’

I wish you every success for the future.

Kind regards

Mediation & Group Conferencing


Stop Hitting Mum! Powerful and moving messages and drawings from young people in refuges and other situations where they have experienced domestic violence in their home. Interviews were undertaken by a team led by professor Audrey Mullender, at Warwick University. Edited by Adrienne Katz, designed by Peter Hamilton.

Parent Problems! and Parent Problems 2.These two powerful books were developed from a qualitative longitudinal study pioneered at Leeds University by Bren Neale and her colleagues. In the first book a range of children are interviewed about the impact of their parents’ parting, while in the second book we hear from the same children – now considerably older – as they look back over what happened and how they are now.
