Reducing Parental Conflict Training

We are currently offering The Reducing Parental Conflict Program in response to research findings that identifies children exposed to parental conflict experience a decline in mental health and poorer long term outcomes.

The aim of the programme is to upskill practitioners in supporting parents to reduce conflict within their relationship irrespective of parents living together or separated. In turn this will enable parents to improve outcomes for their children.

Who is it for?

Practitioners or agencies that have contact with parents either directly, of by working with their children, play an important role in identifying and supporting the reduction of parental conflict. This programme supports practitioners, supervisors, managers and wider agencies in building awareness and developing the confidence, knowledge and skills to work with parents in Gloucestershire.

How is it delivered?

Through 4 e-learning modules and/or a webinar with a Practitioner Delivered Group Training session.

The e-learning programme is delivered through four online learning sessions that cover module content described below and have downloadable material to support learning and practice. All modules are an e-learning programme, which can also be booked as a stand alone method of learning.

Each e-learning session/module take approximately 45 minutes to complete.
