Welcome to the Parenting Coordinators Alliance blog page.

In our blogs, we aim to cover topics that help us all gain a deeper understanding of the effects on children of challenging relationships and communications between parents.   

Many of us PCs have been in practice as specialist family lawyers or mediators for too many years to mention!  From our work with families, our collaboration together and our commitment to staying up to date with the research in this area, we strive to continue learning as much as we can about the effects of separation, with the aim of supporting families to work towards separating in an all-round healthy way. 

Please keep a look out for our regular blog posts.
