Listowel: Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) Programme

This programme was developed to support parents to target aggressive, violent, controlling and risk taking behavior in young people. 

Parents are supported to take a different position in relation to the child and their child’s life. The programme encourages parents to look at how they have given away their authority over time and is supported to refuse orders and to move to a position where they become ”strong as as anchor – not as a fist”.

Through the programme, the parent begins to identify how these situations can quickly get out of hand and learn new ways to address what can be very difficult discussions with their children and skills to de-escalate difficult situations are explored.

The Non-Violent Resistance position is steady, grounded and consistent. It has proven to be effective for many families in ending the cycle of child to parent violence.
