Restorative Thinking and Positive Relationships: preventing and managing conflict


Welcome to Restorative Thinking and ABA’s online relationships information tool for families, parents and carers.

Please note: this module is an information and advice tool for families, parents and carers provided by our partners Restorative Thinking and does not form part of the overall anti-bullying CPD-certified course of modules, therefore there will be no certificate available on completion of this module.

This tool will help if you:

  • are concerned about spending a lot of time with family members at home, and the impact this can have on our relationships
  • are worried that your family might be falling out more
  • want to find out about simple relationship techniques
  • just want to learn more about positive relationships

You can just take the lessons that are of particular interest to you or complete the whole course. However, we recommend taking the lessons in order to get the most out of this course. 

We hope that you will find this tool useful and would be grateful if you could provide us with feedback about your experience of using the site.

To navigate through each lesson, you can click on the arrows under the progress bar within each lesson or by clicking on the progress bar itself.
