What to expect
Reducing Parental Conflict is for parents whether they are together, separated or considering separation, who want to find ways to improve their relationship and get on better. Online courses and resources can support you to find helpful ways to communicate during stressful times. The free courses include:
- Me, You and Baby Too – designed to help new and expectant parents cope with the changes that could happen in their relationship when they become parents and learn how to cope with stress and conflict constructively.
- Arguing Better – designed to raise awareness of the impact parental conflict can have on children and help parents develop better ways of managing stress and arguments together.
- Getting it Right for Children – designed to support separated parents, helping them to avoid the harmful situation of their children getting caught up in the middle of their conflict.
- Debt & Relationships – the impact of debt on relationships and support around what to do when you or your partner are having concerns around money.
