Introducing YCIDS for Practitioners

YCIDS (pronounced “why-kids”) stands for Young Children in Divorce and Separation. YCIDS is an educational program for separated parents who have a baby or very young child, and intend to co-parent.

Being a parent of a baby or toddler is challenging. A bit of worry is just part of the job, but being separated parents with a baby or toddler can come with additional worries, complexity, and lots of questions. YCIDS is here to help.

In just 90 minutes, YCIDS provides a wealth of information about:

  1. Early development, and co-parenting a young child between two homes
  2. Sorting out tough emotions and conflict that interfere with parenting
  3. The right questions to ask, to arrive at a sound overnight parenting plan

Completed online at home, or taken as part of a group or individual service, YCIDS is an inexpensive, quick and effective way to boost knowledge and get on the same page about co-parenting young children after separation.

We have recently translated our acclaimed YCIDS program into Cantonese and Mandarin. We thank our colleagues who have been so helpful with cultural discussions, and with language translations: The Marriage Mediation Counselling Service Centre, within the Hong Kong Catholic Marriage Advisory Council, colleagues from the Singapore Family Court Mediation Service, Evelyn Tan and family, and special thanks too to Bi Xia Ke for her excellent narration.
