Case Study

"I absolutely loved supporting the parents think about better ways to cope with emotions, such as when they focused on their breathing technique and did some mindfulness exercises.”

More about Tavistock Relationships

Tavistock Relationships has a long history of training and programme development in the reducing parental conflict space. 

We are the prime contractor and delivery partner in two of the four areas in which the highly successful Reducing Parental Conflict programme is being run.

Our unique offer is born out of direct experience delivering support to parents in conflict in around 30 local authorities over the last four years.

More about mentalization

How Mentalization-Based Therapy for Parents is improving couple communication, reducing parental conflict and increasing child wellbeing. Read our evidence based policy briefing here.


We have worked closely with Tavistock Relationships as a cluster group of 4 Authority areas to develop a range of training for practitioners to equip them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to reduce parental conflict. Working with Tavistock we have found them to be very understanding of our needs and very flexible in their approach to ensure the best training opportunities to practitioners across our region.
