Child to Parent Violence (CPV) - Non Violent Resistance (NVR) Parenting Approach - London

Description:

Many families are struggling with children and young people coming from a background of complex trauma who present with challenging, destructive and violent behaviours. This day will help you gain an understanding on the principles of NVR in order to implement the first steps on this different parenting journey.

Child to Parent Violence is now recognized as a real risk factor in adoptive families and other permanent placements. NVR is a parenting approached based on the political position of great figures who took it upon themselves to bring about much needed change, without getting caught up in the conflict nor allowing themselves to be dis-empowered.
