RPC Measures Selector

Published

16 Dec 2020

At EIF, we have reviewed a selection of some of the most relevant and frequently used measures that can be used to assess need and impact relating to reducing harmful conflict between parents, supporting parent couple relationships, and improving outcomes for children as a result. By answering a few simple questions, you can use this tool to identify which of these measures are most likely to suit your requirements.

Please click on an individual measure at any time to download an in-depth report on its features and characteristics. For more information on all aspects of selecting and using measures in work to reduce parental conflict, please download our in-depth guide.
