Family mediation on the television

One way to escape the referendum is to watch the start of a new TV documentary series on family mediation, which will be broadcast on Tuesdays at 9pm on BBC2 for three weeks.

The makers of "Mr and Mrs" had privileged access to the private world of family mediation (English style), where separated couples attempt to resolve their disagreements. The aim is to avoid a courtroom battle if possible. Episode one covers 'shuttle mediation' in which the parties stay in separate rooms while the mediators move between them with proposals and counter proposals.

Relationships Scotland and Family Mediation Central Scotland are hosting Parenting Apart Workshops in Stirling. The next workshop will be held on Monday 18th June, 6pm - 9pm at 12 Melville Terrace, Stirling FK8 2NE.
