This course is now full with a waiting list.

Our free two-day Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) training for practitioners takes place on Tuesday-Wednesday, 29th-30th January, 2018, in Bray.

Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) is an integrated, structured and systemic response to child-to-parent violence and abuse.

On completion of this training you will be:

  • able to understand, identify and respond to child-to-parent violence and abuse - an increasing concern in child and family work;
  • ready to facilitate parent groups or work individually with parents who have lost their authority in the relationship with their child;

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 Europe who are using NVR successfully.


The training is provided by Tara Kelly and Catrina Scanlan of New Authority Parenting. Both are practitioners, supervisors and trainers in the NVR programme. Having completed their training as NVR practitioners and trainers with Dr Coogan, they each bring this new and innovative programme – combined with extensive experience with children and families – to their training days.
