Outline
For some children conflict between their parents is part of everyday life and more often than not, parents are not aware of the impact this may have.  This session will look at the impact parental conflict can have on a child’s emotional well-being, their education, behaviour and future life prospects.  Healthy relationships between parents/carers are an important focus for all practitioners who work with children and families. The quality of the relationship, specifically how they communicate and relate to each other, has a significant influence on effective parenting and children’s outcomes.                                 
This course will be delivered by James Urquhart – Early Help Consultant, NYCC
 
Description
The session will define parental conflict and will discuss its impact on children.  Work, finances and household chores are just a few of the competing elements that can cause tensions to rise, disagreements to escalate and arguing to become commonplace.  This session is all about how professionals can recognise and understand the impact of parental conflict on a child’s well-being and how to support families to make positive changes.
 
Outcome
Delegates will have a greater understanding of the impact of parental conflict on a child’s life and will be aware of approaches and tools to help support children and families.
