Reducing Parental Conflict - Recognising, supporting, and working with parents in conflict
Date & Time:
Recognising, supporting, and working with parents in conflict.
Conflict between parents is a normal part of relationships. However, there is a large body of evidence that shows that parental conflict which is frequent, intense and poorly resolved can harm children’s outcomes – regardless of whether parents are together or separated.
The new national Reducing Parental Conflict (RPC) Programme is working to interrupt that cycle, embedding evidence-based support to tackle parental conflict in local areas.
This Reducing Parental Conflict training, delivered by KnowledgePool, will enable participants to:
- Outline the impact of parental conflict on children’s outcomes
- Identify the potential triggers for parental conflict
- Recognise relationship distress at an early stage and when it is potentially damaging
- Support couples experiencing parental conflict and be empowered to act, report or refer should domestic abuse be disclosed/identified
Delegates are asked to bring anonymised information on a case involving parental conflict which may be worked on together in case study discussions.
This one day course covers modules two and three of the Department for Work and Pensions and KnowledgePool’s Reducing Parental Conflict Training Programme. Attendees will be given access to an eLearning programme.
For further information about the training or programme please contact Abi Wycherley, Reducing Parental Conflict Lead for Oxfordshire County Council Abi.Wycherley@Oxfordshire.gov.uk
