Hello. My name is Tara and I'm writing from Ireland. I trained in NVR some years ago with Dr Declan Coogan (NUI Galway) and I now train practitioners in this model/programme which is becoming increasingly popular in Ireland. I am also a PhD student - exploring parent experiences of child to parent violence and NVR. This work introduced me to the SPACE programme and I had the pleasure of attending Dr. Lebowitz's presentation in Tel Aviv last year. In partnership with a colleague (a Systemic Family Therapist), I am using SPACE in a group setting. Eleven parents attend weekly and we find the manual to be very helpful and an excellent guide. This is my second group. For the first, I partnered with a Clinical Psychologist and parents reported that it was very useful. Although we have planned and studied for this in great detail, I am mindful of the fact that we have not availed of SPACE training. Is it likely to be available in Europe at any stage? The parents that have attended our groups have made significant changes. Moving away from waiting for the child to be treated and taking action themselves -essentially moving from protector to supporter - has been a new and positive position to take in relation to their child's anxiety. I would really welcome the opportunity to connect with others around SPACE and to further my learning. I am committed to attending the formal training as soon as I can. I expect that this forum will be very much welcomed by practitioners.
Really I enjoy your site with effective and useful information. It is included very nice post with a lot of our resources.thanks for share. i enjoy this post. Supplements for Mental health
Thanks for your post! At the moment we don't have a training workshop planned in Europe though this may happen. We can always arrange for a workshop if there is a large enough group to support it. You can email if you'd like to more details. I will be presenting a workshop at a conference in Flanders, Belgium in December. Though not a full training (which takes two days at least) it can be something to consider.
