Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) Awareness Day - Leeds

Description:

A first introduction to NVR principles and methods for adoptive parents and other permanent carers (support workers can attend with a parent if they feel it is appropriate to).

Participants will become familiarised with the underlying principles of NVR, and learn about some of the core methods which help build ‘new authority’ in the family and re-connect parent and child.*

Topics covered

  1. Building parental presence, when consequences or rewards have not been working: actual physical presence, embodied & systemic presence.
  2. Exploring non-violent methods which use and build parental presence, such as the announcement, campaign of concern and sit in.
  3. When parents can’t see the wood for all the trees: the art of prioritising which problems to tackle.
  4. From shame to support and re-connection between parent and child: understanding and using reconciliation gestures to restore and relationships and address the unmet needs of the child.
  5. From shame to repair and belonging: challenging and supporting children and young people to make reparation to others, so they can once again find their place in the family and community.
