Becoming a parent, and being a parent, can affect the quality of people's couple relationships, positively and negatively.
Research conclusively shows that simply targeting the parent-child relationship in the context of ongoing inter-parental conflict does not lead to sustained positive outcomes for children.
This is one of the reasons why we have developed a parenting intervention which is relationally-focused, and which has achieved impressive results in terms of improving children's mental health and behaviour and improving the quality of couple relationship.

Parents as Partners
Building Relationships for Stronger Families
The ‘Building Relationships for Better Families’ programme helps with stress and conflict in relationships is affecting families.
The programme offers parents support to suit their circumstances to address conflict within their relationship as well as strengthening parenting skills to bring up children.
Support takes the form of one to one or group sessions delivered by experienced facilitators who are skilled in encouraging discussion around the modern struggles that parents and couples face.
During the programme, participants work on relationships, whether together or separate, and find ways to manage stresses and disagreements, exploring patterns of behaviour and tools and techniques to improve parenting skills and helping families succeed.
