The Irish Association of Social Workers (IASW) and Social Care Ireland (SCI) have joined with the MA in Social Work Programme at the School of Political Science and Sociology, NUI Galway to offer a module in Non Violent Resistance in Practice. This advanced level course will appeal to social workers and social care practitioners who have no previous training or CPD activities in this area as well as those who have completed the two-day training course on NVR.
The course has been funded by the HSCP Office, HSE. As such, places are available to social workers in the publicly funded healthcare service. Tusla staff and those working in Tusla funded services are not eligible to apply.
The module consists of primarily online teaching on Mondays in November between 10am to 4pm as well as independent study. We hope that the final day can take place in person in one central location. Participants can earn ECTS on completion of the course. The course is free and requires a deposit of €100. The deposit is refundable on completion of 80% of the course.
The closing date for applications was Monday, 20th September. Eligible applications are currently being reviewed and applicants will be contacted before the end of September regarding a place on the course.
