Event description
Module 2 of the Reducing Parental Conflict programme will provide you with knowledge, skills and techniques to recognise and support parents

About this Event


This module is 2 of 4, delivered as part of the Reducing Parental Conflict programme, and explores how to recognise the signs of parental conflict at the early stages. It highlights how to support parents in finding constructive outcomes which are shown to provide positive lessons for children to learn such skills as negotiation and compromise.

Note: This programme is designed for parental conflict situations and does not cover the knowledge, skills or techniques required in more complex cases of domestic abuse or domestic violence dealt with via other programmes.


The module is designed as a skills-based workshop giving opportunities to practise techniques to engage with couples/co-parents in practical situations. It is open to front line practitioners working with adults, children and families in Lambeth.


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

• 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

• Revisit the stressors that may lead to parental conflict

• Recognise the role of fathers / male carers in a child’s life and understand the importance of including co-parents in all forms of co-parenting couples

• Build confidence and skills by using effective listening and questioning techniques to identify and discuss parental conflict triggers

• Understand your role and responsibilities in discussing parental conflict with parents, to help frontline practitioners assist parents to understand the impact of parental conflict on their children
