'Beginner's Mind'

Nonviolent Resistance (NVR) is a powerful (yet gentle), ethically-sound philosophy and skills-set that can help anyone living with and/ or supporting children and young people who might present in violent, aggressive and destructive ways.

During the first lockdown in 2020, we developed our NVR - ‘Beginner’s Mind’ online group sessions and they have proved incredibly popular, attracting attendees from all over the UK, the UAE and the USA.


NVR is a systemic, parent-centred, child-focussed approach which concerns itself with the raising of parental presence in the household and in the broader family and social systems.


Our NVR - 'Beginner's Mind' Group consists of 6 fortnightly, two and a half hour online meetings for collaborative information-sharing and discussion about the fundamentals of NVR. No prior knowledge of NVR is necessary, just curiosity and a willingness to explore a new way of approaching troubling behaviours.

Groups consist of a mix of professionals and parents/ carers which has made for really interesting discussions and some great learning opportunities (you can read some recent feedback below).

We're pleased to announce that dates have just been released for our next group.   NVR - 'Beginner's Mind' (BM11) starts on the 18th September - if you'd like to join us, please follow the link below to book your place:-
