Item Type: Reports, briefing/ working papers (Project Report)


In January 2020, all Early Help staff in Together for Children (TfC), Sunderland, were invited to take part in online ‘how to argue better’ training, also known as ‘parental conflict training’, to recognise and support families in dealing with parental conflict. TfC also commission domestic violence advocates as part of their wider response to domestic abuse across the City of Sunderland. The role of the advocates is to support the staff in children’s services, providing advice on specific cases where families need a higher-level of intervention. This report analyses the 36 responses to an
online Qualtrics survey to explore the following
research question: ‘How effective is the ‘how
to argue better’ training and use of domestic
violence advocates as perceived by staff from
Early Help?’
