Venue: Central Hotel, Exchequer Street, Dublin 2.
Topic: Non-Violent Resistance (NVR): An integrated,
structured and systemic response to child to parent violence and abuse.
Training in the NVR programme, originally designed by Dr Declan Coogan (NUIG), will be introduced to Family Therapists who work with parents/carers who feel they have lost their authority in the relationship with their child. We will also focus on de-escalation skills, increasing parental presence and building stronger relationships.
There is growing evidence that building or restoring parental authority through NVR is also proving to be successful in addressing child and adolescent anxiety and self-harm. NVR is increasingly being used in foster care to reduce conflict and strengthen relationships. Join the growing number of child welfare practitioners around Ireland and Europe who are using NVR successfully.
The training is provided by Catrina Scanlan and Madeleine Connolly- both are practitioners, supervisors and trainers in the NVR programme, having completed their training as NVR practitioners and trainers with Dr Coogan.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) = 2 hours. CPD certificates will be issued by the Family Therapy Assoc. of Ireland (FTAI). See you @ the Systemic Cafe
