Reducing parental conflict

What is the reducing parental conflict programme?
The reducing parental conflict programme has been designed to upskill schools in supporting parents to reduce conflict within their relationship, whether they are together or separated.
In turn, they can then improve outcomes for their children. Read more about the reducing parental conflict programme.
Why is it important for you to be aware of reducing parental conflict?
When parents are in conflict, research suggests that this reduces the effectiveness of other interventions for the family. Addressing parental conflict and the quality of interparental relationships is a critical component of improving child outcomes.
In Ealing we are working across services on reducing family conflict and supporting families earlier so conflict does not lead to lasting damage for children, young people and parents. Offering support to address other issues in families is likely to be ineffective where the conflict between parents is not acknowledged and addressed.
