Early Break Early Break is a charitable service, offering a range of support to young people and families in Bury, Rochdale, Bolton, Salford and Trafford. These include advocacy services supporting young people with drugs and alcohol. Holding Families supports families affected by parental substance misuse.
Our Emotional Health and Wellbeing service offers therapies, mindfulness, bereavement and loss counselling and anti-bullying programmes.
We are working in partnership with Early Break, who have been commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions in the Innovation Fund: Reducing Parental Conflict for Alcohol Dependant Parents.
Early Break are working in prisons, the treatment system and children’s service provision to train their practitioners with evidence interventions based derived from OnePlusOne's “How to Argue Better” programme across five localities to reduce parental conflict.
OnePlusOne worked with Early Break to create a bespoke family conflict intervention and workbook, based on ‘How to Argue Better’ as well as a practitioner guide to accompany the training. This was trialled in June with Early Break practitioners as part of the co-production process and is currently being trialled in Styal prisoners with women awaiting release.
The pilot will be evaluated as part of the larger programme by Tavistock Relationships.
What we achieved:
We co-designed a bespoke training programme HTAB plus including:
A guide for working with family conflict (practitioners)
A guide for building positive family relationships (for families)
