The financial climate has created difficulties for everyone. New challenges are emerging for families that can sometimes be overwhelming; causing stress, conflict, separations, mental health difficulties, and substance misuse. Professional responses to these challenges need to be innovative, applicable, and based on theoretical principals and good practice. We believe that, now more than ever, professional education and training; and continuing professional development, in essential.


However, we also recognise that professionals are not immune to the pressures of the current financial situation. That is why we are excited to offer a new way of delivering our training. We have joined with our sister company 'Child Protection Services Ireland' to offer elearning courses. These courses can be completed in your own time, at your own pace. They are more comprehensive and interactive, ensuring that you receive an in-depth understanding of the subject. They are also assessed, which provides you with the challenge of fully engaging with the topic.



We also offer day training and will be advertising these courses throughout the year. We are also happy to discuss with agencies their specific training requirements. For all training enquires send us an email or through out contacts page.


Expressions of interest are welcome for our upcoming day training events.
