Event description

About this Event

Non Violent Resistance (NVR) has its roots in the work of Ghandi and Martin Luther King and was created by Haim Omer, a clinical psychologist working in Israel.

Unlike other parenting programs it looks to improve relationships, making them stronger, rather than focusing solely on behaviour. It helps parents to examine their own actions and beliefs, giving them new ways of dealing with challenging situations in a much calmer and more confident manner. This in turn changes the environment for the whole family, bringing them closer. It creates a notable improvement in the confidence and sense hope of the parents, which is extremely rewarding to see.

NVR has a developing evidence base regarding its success when working with trauma, child-parent violence, anxiety and other mental health difficulties.

The workshop will aim to offer practitioners an introduction to the key ideas around NVR as an intervention when working alongside parents who are experiencing controlling or challenging behaviours from children and young people. Practitioners will gain knowledge of the principles of NVR as well as an overview of how to apply the ideas to practice when working with parents.

The day will be combination of theory and practical work. We aim to make all of our training as experiential as possible to provide participants with tangible & practical techniques to take forward into their practice.

Julie and Helen have many years of experience of working within CAMHS and Social Care, working longside parents to support them in understanding and applying the principles of NVR
