Reducing Parental Conflict (known locally as Wakefield Relationship Matterslink

Designed to provide practitioners and their managers with the skills in supporting parents/carers to reduce conflict within their relationship, whether they are together or separated. Research has found that children exposed to parental conflict experience a decline in their mental health and long-term outcomes.

Practitioners will explore how to discuss parental conflict with parents, focusing on practising skills such as negotiation and compromise when handling conversations with parents. Practitioners will be provided with tools and techniques to enable parents to resolve destructive conflict with positive outcomes not only for parents but improve outcomes for their children.

There are 4 modules to this e-learning programme which is provided through Knowledgepool. You can complete these at your own pace.
