Introduction to NVR (level 1)

This one day workshop will introduce the tools of the NVR (Non-Violent Resistance) Parenting Programme. NVR is an effective practice based evidence course that aims to help parents and carers manage older children and adolescents where there are difficulties due to defiance, conduct problems, child to parent violence, school refusal, ADHD, ASD or significant anxiety.

Using a mix of teaching, role play and discussion, we will introduce NVR tools including De-escalation, Parental Presence and a further range of NVR tools and techniques that support parents and carers to re-build the relationship with their child / young person.

Target Audience: Groups 3 – 6; Members of the workforce who work predominantly with children, young people and/or their parents/carers and who could potentially contribute to assessing, planning, intervening and reviewing the needs of a child and parenting capacity where there are safeguarding concerns. Operational managers at all levels.

Aims & Objectives: By the end of this one day course participants will have:

  • A basic understanding of NVR theory and practice
  • The ability to introduce NVR ideas with their clients
  • Access to level 2 and 3 training workshops, subject to availability
