Reducing Parental Conflict – Module 1

Course overview

The Reducing Parental Conflict Programme has been designed to up-skill practitioners in supporting parents to reduce conflict within their relationship, whether they are together or separated.

In turn, they can then improve outcomes for their children.

Module 1: Understanding  Parental Conflict and its Impact on Child Outcomes: How can I use the evidence base to support parent relationships?

This Module is designed as part of an awareness programme exploring the evidence base for parental conflict and its impact on children. Open to a wide range of participants including front line practitioners, senior leaders, and service designers or commissioners working in a variety of roles across the reach of Local Authorities and associated organisations, for whom increased awareness will lead to great identification of opportunities for early intervention.
