Opportunities for Professionals Working with Families

Positive Parenting for Changing Families CoverDoes your work bring you into contact with families, parents or children? Family support workers, social workers, youth workers, therapists, educators, drugs project workers, teachers, counsellors, people who deliver training programmes and other professionals in a variety of roles will gain real value from participating in a One Family professional development programme this Spring.

They include our acclaimed three day programmes – Positive Parenting for Changing Families and Family Communications – as well as specialist half day workshops such as Coaching Parents in Successful Shared Parenting and Talking to a Child About Their Absent Parent which are three hours packed full of current information. CPD points are available for our half day workshops, while our three day programmes offer all of the benefits of One Family accreditation and a beautifully designed robust manual that will be a valued resource for years to come.

One Family was founded in 1972 and brings 40+ years experience working with parents and children to all of our Professional Development programmes. Our programmes are also extensively researched and regularly updated, ensuring that they offer professionals working with families today a fully rounded development opportunity which will enable them to acquire real skills for everyday use.

A busy schedule for Spring sees us deliver programmes in Dublin, Galway and Westport. We can also faciliate groups in other areas or in organisations on request.

If one of your new year resolutions is to invest in your career development in 2015, this could be the training opportunity you’ve been looking for. Call One Family’s Director of Professional Development, Paula Lonergan on 01 662 9212 or email her to discuss your needs as a professional working with families.

One Family Bulgarian training a huge success

One Family Training Manager Paula Lonergan is just back from a very successful trip to Sofia, where she delivered parenting training to Bulgarian experts working with families. His Excellency John Rowan, Irish Ambassador to Bulgaria, handed certificates to the 20 experts from Bulgarian NGO’s who completed the training, during a special reception in the Irish embassy in Sofia. His Excellency Emil Yalmazov, Bulgarian Ambassador to Ireland, also attended the event. One Family delivered the training free of charge as a gesture of goodwill as we approach our 40th anniversary year.
