Introduction to NVR Workshop
Time & Location
Nonviolent Resistance (NVR) is a powerful (yet gentle), ethically-sound philosophy and skills set, providing an alternative approach towards raising and supporting young people who may present in violent, aggressive and controlling ways. It can enable adults to reconnect with their young charges, whilst (re)establishing a credible and strong position of supported authority - even when the young person refuses to cooperate in the process.
The morning will be spent exploring the ‘New Authority’ thinking at the core of NVR, in preparation for a brief summary of NVR’s core methods in the afternoon. This introduction is intended as a broad overview that will positively influence your thinking, grow your repertoire of responses and inspire you to further NVR learning. It is not instructional training, so we’ll close with a discussion about your next steps on your own particular NVR journey.
This is a workshop for anyone who lives with or works with young people who can be violent & destructive and do not respond to traditional reward and punishment/behaviour modification approaches – it’s for Parents (Biological, Step, Adoptive and Foster) and Professionals (Mental Health Professionals, Teachers, Social Care Professionals and Youth Service Professionals) who are seeking an effective alternative.
