This interactive webinar, delivered by Relate, will support Hampshire professionals, and volunteers to feel confident to differentiate between parental conflict and domestic abuse and to establish at what point parental conflict might become unhealthy. Participants will be able to identify and understand the detrimental impact exposure to a level of parental conflict will have the child/children living in the family. They will learn how to respond, protect children and support parents.

This webinar will also provide signposting to additional information to support professionals, where parental conflict is interfering with family life and proving a barrier to effective professional intervention. The webinar is available to all staff who either come into contact with parents or are directly working with children and young people. This includes schools, nurseries, police colleagues, health colleagues, social workers and family support staff.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify and be able to explain to parents how conflicting behaviours within the family network can have a negative impact on family life and, in particular, the children  
  • Understand what impact your own experience of conflict has on your confidence to have conversations with parents about their conflict
  • Learn about tools that may help aid the conversations you have with parents and how these can be used to support parents to positively communicate with each other
  • Gain new strategies and techniques on how parental conflict can be responded to in a strengths-based way
  • Gain a basic understanding of the rights/responsibilities of parents and learn about simple tools to enable cooperative working between parents
  • Acquire a good working knowledge of the threshold for referral to level 3 or 4 services
  • Learn from scenarios and case studies
