Child Inclusive Practice

Child Inclusive Practice (CIP)

The voice of the child in family separation.

An evidence based approach designed to hear the voices of children to ensure a child’s emotional needs are maintained post separation. Child Inclusive Practice is a safe environment facilitated by trained practitioners. Child Inclusive Practice is available to families with children aged 5 years and older.


The aims of child inclusive practice are to

  • create an environment that supports disputing parents
  • facilitate a parenting agreement that preserves significant relationships
  • support a child’s psychological adjustment to the separation
  • support parents to leave the dispute resolution forum on higher rather than diminished ground with respect to their post-separation parenting
  • ensure that the ongoing mediation/litigation process and the agreements or decisions reached reflect the basic psycho-developmental needs of each child
