15 Themes from free text : How to improve the programme. Should be offered earlier in the process – before court (most common theme by far) Needs content geared toward younger children (DVD, scenarios) More and better information prior to the course on the content of the course Consider suitability more carefully – e.g.: DV, time since separation, whether or not the parents had been in a long term relationship “More” – additional sessions, follow up sessions, longer sessions
