The Early Intervention Foundation RPC hub is for local leaders, commissioners, practitioners and researchers who are looking to reduce the impact of parental conflict on children. It provides a central repository of key ‘what works’ evidence and tools, including why parental conflict matters for children’s outcomes, and guidance on how to take action. The hub will continue to grow as new evidence and tools are created.

Brene Brown- The Power of empathy


Throughout the Strengthening Parental Relationships toolkit we aim to give clear messaging that parental conflict is very different from domestic abuse.  Nicole Jacobs, Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England and Wales expresses the importance of being able to distinguish between Domestic abuse and parental conflict.

Experts on domestic abuse recognise that it is evidently distinct from parental conflict. One is about two parents feeling able to express their feelings and wishes (albeit not always in a constructive or positive way), but the other is about one partner exerting power and control over another – even where a victim may attempt to resist that control.” 

 “I would also caution against an understanding of parental conflict as something that could escalate into domestic abuse. To understand abuse in this context risks victim blaming – that somehow the conflict became ‘too much’ and one parent lashes out at another.”
