Non-Violent Resistance Practitioner Certificate

This programme will equip practitioners with the skills and strategies needed to work with parents and families experiencing high levels of distress and difficulty within the family system.

Non Violent Resistance (NVR) is an innovative form of systemic family therapy, which has been developed for aggressive, violent, controlling and self-destructive behaviour in children & young people.

This three and a half day NVR programme provides a model of practice for professionals working with vulnerable children, young people and families to address aggressive, controlling and coersive behaviours. The structured model of NVR taught promotes a boundaried, connective and therapeutic caring/parenting approach.

By the end of the course, participants will:
  • Understand the context of an NVR approach within their workplace
  • Have explored the NVR model and processes
  • Have practiced NVR formulation for intervention
  • Practice the use of de-escalation and self-regulation skills
  • Developed skills in implementing an NVR support approach
