Reducing Parental Conflict – Module (1) 2

Course overview

Please note due to the similarity / repetitiveness between Modules 1 and 2 we do not run Module 1 as a separate course – we run Module 2 with an overview of Module 1.  However, you are able to complete Module 1 through e-learning.

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 2: Recognising and Supporting Parents in Parental Conflict: Applying knowledge, skills and techniques.

This is module 2 of 4, delivered as part of the Reducing Parental Conflict Programme, and explores how to recognise the signs of parental conflict at the early stages. It highlights how to support parents in finding constructive outcomes which are shown to provide positive lessons for children to learn such skills as negotiation and compromise.


The Learner Journey

For optimum learner experience, it is very important each module is completed in sequence, giving participants the opportunity to build confidence and competence over time. Ideally they should be completed during the same month.
