Since the RCPV Project ended in January 2015 five more two day trainings in CPV and NVR have taken place in Ireland. The trainings were held in Dublin, Donegal, Kildare and Galway. Many more practitioners are now aware of CPV and can use NVR to assist their clients.
A talk organised by the Cork Family Support Network and the Cork City Partnership was held in Cork City Hall on the 22nd of October. This seminar was for practitioners that wanted to learn more about Child to Parent Violence and the Non-Violent Resistance programme.
