The Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) Parenting Programme has helped thousands of families to change their lives. Parents report increased confidence in their parenting, a greater sense of agency and improved relationships within the family.
NVR has been implemented in a wide range of family situations, including violence, drug/alcohol misuse, verbal abuse, self-harm, controlling behaviour and eating disorders. NVR can be used with children from around 5 years old, right up to adulthood. It also has proved effective with neuro-atypical children/young people and with all kinds of family make-up, including foster and adoptive families.
Want to find out more? Come along to our online Introduction to NVR session
This session is aimed at parents and carers struggling to manage their children/young people’s behaviours of concern, and the people supporting them. It is a live and interactive presentation by the NVR Practitioners Consortium.
The presentation will introduce the principles of NVR, helping you to decide if this approach could work for your family, and offering some tools for you to implement straightaway.
About the facilitators:
Dawn Oliver was trained in NVR by Michelle Shapiro in 2015. Dawn has theoretical knowledge and personal experience in the fields of autism, adoption and person-centred approaches. Dawn has delivered NVR training to parents of children with SEND in schools. She also facilitates NVR group trainings for adoptive parents, parents of children with SEND and foster carers, as well as working directly with families. Dawn also trains professionals. Dawn is a qualified NVR Practitioner and Supervisor.
Rachel Braverman discovered NVR just in time. Her adopted son has significant and complex needs, which nearly led to the placement breaking down. Adopting NVR principles has led to the violence reducing from daily/going on for hours to occasional and short lived episodes, transforming the atmosphere at home. In her professional life, Rachel was an experienced trainer and facilitator, so she was delighted to be able to train as an NVR practitioner in 2018. She works with groups and individual families.
