“Parents are under pressure. Latest reports suggest that lockdown has led to an increase in parental conflict”.

“Research has found that children exposed to parental conflict experience a decline in their mental health and poorer long-term outcomes”.

The Reducing Parental Conflict Programme is focused on supporting families across the public sector during lockdown.

This training is designed to support anyone working with families in building awareness and developing the confidence,

knowledge and skills to work with parents to reduce conflict within their relationships and drive more positive outcomes

for their children.

Course details:

Who is the training for?

Practitioners or agencies that have contact with parents either directly, or by working with their children, play an important role in identifying and supporting the reduction of parental conflict.

This training has been designed for any services that engage with families from library services to drug and alcohol services and including all education settings, police, youth services, mental health services, GP practices, Health visitors and midwives, tenancy support roles, citizens’ advice volunteers, social workers, whole family workers and roles supporting families with children with SEND.

How is the training delivered?

The programme is delivered through four half-day virtual classroom sessions. Dependent on your requirements, modules can be combined or attended as stand alone sessions. All virtual classroom modules are supported by a trainer and an e-learning programme.

The webinars will be interactive sessions, including the use of break out rooms for group discussion and engagement with your trainers throughout the process. Training is easy to access from, tablets or laptops. People are on hand to provide support in case you encounter any IT surprises.
