Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) training / strategies for parents

What is it?

NVR stands for Non Violent Resistance and was originally developed as an approach to parenting and caring for those young people who are violent, risk taking, aggressive or self-destructive.

The technique is now being used in a variety of settings including work in communities and schools and also with adults.

How does NVR work?

Information available from the Partnership Projects website explains that resistance against the violence is developed step by step, building on what parents experience in the process, the support they are able to receive, and their growing confidence.

Where is NVR therapy available?

NVR can be provided by family therapists, clinical psychologists and other mental health professionals who have been trained in the use of this approach.
