This is an evidence based short course for couples to help with reducing conflict and improving co-operative parenting. The first two years of a baby’s life are both challenging and joyful for parents and it helps to do some couples work to sort out why we react the way we do, and how we can work together better. This is a 2-day face to face program.  

Babes in arms allowed, however please arrange alternate care for crawling babies and older children.
