The Early Intervention Foundation (EIF) has published a report about how to engage disadvantaged and vulnerable parents in parenting and parental conflict services. Findings, based on a rapid evidence review, include: interventions can lack sensitivity to the needs of disadvantaged groups; multiple communication channels, well-integrated services and a targeted offer are seen as good methods for recruiting parents; and adapting content and delivery, developing a strong therapeutic alliance and removing stigma associated with seeking support can help keep parents involved. Recommendations include: monitoring data should be collected throughout intervention delivery and a focus on workforce skills and capacity is needed. The EIF has also published an updated guide for commissioners on reducing parental conflict and an outcomes framework for addressing parental conflict.
