HEALTHIER RELATIONSHIPS

About Healthier Relationships

Age range: Suitable for parents with children of any age up to 16 years 

Duration: Flexible

Delivery: Online resources 

 

Arguments are part of every healthy relationship but when they become frequent, intense and poorly resolved they have a negative impact on you and your family. A relationship in distress can place children at risk of mental health and behavioural issues, and they may have problems with school and learning. 
 
Evidence has shown that when parents, co-parents and carers communicate well and manage stress together, children do better. 
 
There are two ways you can access support for you and your family: 

  1. Join our online group-support workshop to talk things through with others

  2. Or log onto our self-help tools and explore at your own pace

  • Me, You and Baby Too - aimed at expecting and new parents. 

  • Arguing Better - aimed at couples who are together  

  • Getting it Right for Children - aimed at couples who are separating or have separated

Other resources

When we argue with our partner or ex-partner, we can get caught up in the heat of the moment. At times like these, it’s difficult to find a way forward.

The above video entitled ‘Parental Conflict, the impact on children’ is a short film to demonstrate the effect of inter-parental conflict on children.
