There is strong evidence that conflict between parents – whether together or separated – can have a significant negative impact on children’s mental health and long-term life chances. Not all conflict is damaging, but where this is frequent, intense and poorly resolved it can harm children’s outcomes.
The Reducing Parental Conflict (RPC) programme is aimed at conflict below the threshold of domestic abuse.
The GSCP DWP grant for delivering RPC training has now ended. Hopefully some you attended the training or someone in your team attended the train the trainer sessions and have shared information within your teams. Tavistock relationships have recorded a webcasts which will be added to the series of GSCP webcasts and e-learning launching in the next few weeks. There is also a dedicated page on our website.
