Reducing Parental Conflict

We are pleased to offer colleagues from Southend and Thurrock the opportunity to attend Reducing Parental Conflict Training.  This training will be delivered via MS Teams.  It is delivered over two consecutive half days and you must be able to attend both dates.

Aim:- Having constructive, supportive relationships has never been more important.  These evidence-based resources have been built to help couples strengthen their relationship and manage their conflict better, and to help separated parents understanding how conflict can affect their children.

Target audience:- This training is for anyone who works with parents or families.

Learning outcomes:- The sessions aim to enhance your knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence to work with parents.  By the end of the training you will be able to:

  • Raise parents' awareness of the issue of parental conflict.
  • Use digital resources to help parents recognise conflict.
  • Enable parents to develop positive communication skills and helpful conflict behaviours.

You will be trained in the use of three digital resources designed to reduce parental conflict with three different audiences:-

  • Me, You and Baby Too (for new parents)
  • Arguing better (for parents experiencing stress and conflict)
  • Getting it Right for Children (for separating or separated parents)
