Lookup NU author(s): Professor Bryan Clark



This is the authors' accepted manuscript of a report published in its final definitive form in 2019. For re-use rights please refer to the publishers terms and conditions.


This is a final report in respect of research conducted by Bryan Clark and Gerry Keegan of the University for Newcastle University, Law School into ‘Parenting Apart’ services offered by Member Services affiliated to Relationships Scotland. The primary purpose of this study is to seek evidence on the effectiveness of Parenting Apart as an intervention for parents involved in legal separation or divorce. One particular aspect of the research is to analyse to what extent parents’ participation in Parenting Apart provides benefits for their subsequent or concurrent involvement in family mediation and to add more generally to the existing evidence on the potential utility of Parenting Apart. The project was funded by a small grant from Relationships Scotland and work was undertaken by the team broadly between the months of May and September 2019.
