Introduction to NVR (level 1)
A three part interactive workshop to support professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond
This three part 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.
Before applying for this workshop, please note the following conditions:
Introduction to Non-Violent Resistance is usually a whole day course, we understand that webinars can be quite demanding so we intend to spread the learning over three sessions, with exercises to complete at home / in the office (beforehand, in-between and after). All virtual sessions will be a maximum 3 1/2 hours in length.
Please only apply if you can attend all 3 sessions.
- We may send pre-course information.

You MUST attend all 3 sessions and complete the evaluation to achieve accreditation and receive your certificate.
