Description

THIS TRAINING IS ONLY FOR PARENTS OF CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WITH SEND,LIVING IN WALTHAM FOREST

THIS SESSION IS FOR THOSE WITH VERBAL/HIGHER FUNCTIONING CHILDREN WHO CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE ASKING THEM TO DO

A FOLLOW UP SESSION WILL BE IN FEBRUARY 2019 TO DEAL WITH PERSONAL ISSUES YOU MAY BE EXPERIENCING





Non-Violent Resistance, or NVR for short, is a philosophy originally used by Gandhi and Mandela as a way of taking a stand against aggressive regimes. It was adapted by Prof Haim Omer to be used in a family setting and focusses on developing strong, connected relationships between the parent(s) and child. It does not try to change the child using any form of behaviour management strategy, instead it uses the presence of the parent which in NVR is known as ‘parental presence’. It uses reconciliation gestures to let the child know it is loved, thought about and even understood, and are a means by which the parent can begin to address the child’s unmet needs. Over time the parent begins to feel more empowered in the relationship and the connection between parent and child improves.
NVR can be used by itself or alongside other therapies. It takes commitment and persistence from the parent but it is very effective.

Outline of the day
The training will cover:
• A very brief overvie/recap of NVR
• how to deal with meltdowns,

The professional information

I have worked in education for over 10 years. As the Business Manager of a large secondary, and member of the leadership team, I supported staff with behaviour management issues and dealt with situations when required.

I have an MSc in Educational Leadership and am a Chartered Fellow with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.

I am a trained NVR Practitioner, through the Partnership Projects led by Dr Peter Jakobs and an experienced and trained coach. I use a coaching approach with parents.

The interesting information

I'm a single adoptive mum, passionate about helping other families experiencing difficulties. I adopted a gorgeous seven year old little boy and together we have been on a journey of discovery. It hasn't been an easy road, more of a roller coaster, but I'm so glad I chose to adopt and I wouldn't turn the clock back for anything.

During my journey I've learnt to support my son with his anxiety and have stopped most of his unacceptable behaviours. These weren't because he was an unduly aggressive child (although he displayed several aggressive tendencies) but he was very distressed, due to past trauma, which evidenced itself in his aggressive and anxious behaviour and his inability to deal with his emotions. Through the use of Non Violent Resistance (NVR) our family dynamic has changed and my son is now more confident and understands how to appropriately express his emotions. It hasn't been an easy or smooth road, but we've come through it and I'm passionate about helping other families do the same. I now coach parents who are struggling and want to create a safe, happier environment at home.
