Relationship Matters: Reducing Parental Conflict Toolkit Training

All Courses Limited to 5 places per booking


Relationships affect everyone; they are part of being human and are one of the hardest to navigate around as both a child and an adult.

This course is designed to increase the participants knowledge and understanding of what parental conflict is, how to recognise it as well as encouraging participants to develop a range of practical strategies in supporting families to address conflict with the help of Wakefield’s relationship toolkit.


This course is aimed at any multi-agency practitioners who work or volunteer with children and their families, from health, education, police, social care, early intervention and prevention and the voluntary sector for example.

Further information

The training is relevant in exploring all kinds of relationships, for example, heterosexual couples, same sex couples, families with adopted children and blended families including differences in cultures or religions.

The toolkit is designed to increase practitioners’ confidence in their ability to have difficult conversations with couples about their relationship by empowering them to seek and explore their own behavioural patterns and share knowledge to give families the tools they need to make their relationships healthier.

The training will explore the importance of seeing children as an ‘active collaborator’ who can valuably add to decisions around the support that is being created around them.  There will be practical advice and discussions around how to ‘nominate’ families so they can engage in appropriate interventions to help them positively manage their relationships.

Course Highlights

At the end of the training, you will be able to understand:

  • What causes conflict in a relationship
  • How to help couples understand their conflict
  • How to help couples either repair what is not working or develop approaches in co-parenting.
  • How to identify signs of relationship distress in both parents and children.
  • How to approach talking about relationships to couples
