WEBINAR session,


Working with Parents in Conflict: PART TWO: How do I support, refer or intervene?


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.

By the end of this half-day skills-based workshop delivered by KnowledgePool, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the level of conflict encountered and describe the most appropriate support to offer
  • Respond appropriately when parental conflict is identified
  • Practice how to approach conversations that may arise around distressed relationships
  • Know about the available local and national resources available to support parents whose relationship is in conflict
  • Help parents to engage with these services, by being able to describe what they do and what the evidence shows us about long term outcomes for children
  • Identify when to talk with your manager about possible domestic abuse and/or child safeguarding situations
  • Delegates are asked to bring anonymised information on a case involving parental conflict which may be worked on together in case study discussions.


Please ensure you book a place on BOTH part one and two.

Please note you will receive joining instructions directly from KnowledgePool your course link will be via Adobe Connect
