Introduction to non-violent resistance (NVR) parenting - via Zoom

Description:

Child-to-Parent Violence is now recognised as a real risk factor in foster families, 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.

Many children and young people coming from a background of complex trauma present with challenging, destructive and violent behaviours. This training will help you gain an understanding of the how the NVR approach can help these children and their parents, in order to support the families you are working with, and/or to make better informed recommendations re therapeutic interventions for the families you are supporting.
