Non-violent Resistance (NVR) 2 day Training for practitioners
What is NVR?
Non-Violent Resistance is a systemic approach to ending abusive/violent behaviour of children towards their parents/carers. The model leads to change by focusing on work with parents over a period of 8-9 weeks following assessment.
There is a lot of information on the NVR Ireland website (https://nvrireland.ie) that will assist re information.
The two-day training for practitioners covers the development of research and theory about child to parent violence. In the training we look at what is CPV as distinct from other behaviours and outline in detail the NVR model and how it is applied as an intervention.
The training also covers the development of NVR in Ireland and has practical elements included so that those attending get a great chance to practice the skills of assessing and delivering the NVR intervention. This training is focused on young people under 18 years.
A definition we use re CPV is “Child to parent violence and abuse is an abuse of power through which children & young people aged 18 years of age and younger coerces, controls or dominates others in the family. It is a pattern of harmful acts through which a child or adolescent gains power and control over family members through threats or use of physical, psychological and/or financial abuse/ violence.
If parents/carers feel they must adapt their behaviour due to threats or abusive/violent behaviour by a child or adolescent, then there is child to parent violence.”
