About this Event

Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) is an empowering and non-physical method for parents and carers to manage and connect with young people to reduce and eradicate violence and abuse.

Often, caregivers try to control, to avoid being controlled and a downward spiral ensues. Many young people resist being controlled and the result is symmetrical escalation (carer and child both losing their temper and trying to control each other) or complementary escalation (where the child becomes more and more coercive and powerful, and their parents or caregivers increasingly give in to their demands). This can lead to feelings of being helpless, hopeless, manipulated, powerless, inadequate, frustrated and desperate. The primary goal of NVR is the repair and rebuilding of relationships within the family.

This is an introduction to some of the principles of NVR which when put in place, will begin to help develop a more co-operative and harmonious relationship.
