Working with Parents in Conflict Module 2


Module 2: Recognising and Supporting Parents in Parental Conflict: Applying knowledge, skills and techniques


Course Aims;

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.


The module is designed as a skills-based workshop giving opportunities to practice techniques to engage with couples/co-parents in practical situations. Open to a wide range of front line practitioners working with adults, children and families in a variety of roles across the reach of Local Authorities and partner organisations.

By the end of this half-day, skills-based workshop, 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.
