Conflict between parents both openly hostile or cold and chronic has been shown to have long term impacts for children’s development and wellbeing. When faced with poorly resolved conflict between their parents, not only are children likely to experience stress, anxiety and emotional insecurity but also to develop internal working models and unconscious attributions that affect their lives and relationships throughout childhood and in adulthood. Drawing on research and intervention studies, and using attachment and object relations frameworks, the seminar will provide opportunities to consider the practice implications of research for working with individuals, couples and families to break negative intergenerational cycles.
