For parents and carers of children with challenging behaviours 

8 week course, Wednesday evenings 7:30-9:00pm, September - November 2019 via Zoom

Are you struggling to manage your child/young person’s aggressive, violent, controlling or self-destructive behaviour? Look no further, we can help! 

The Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) Parenting Programme has helped thousands of families to change their lives. Parents report increased confidence in their parenting, a greater sense of agency and improved relationships within the family.  

NVR has been implemented in a wide range of family situations, including violence, drug/alcohol misuse, verbal abuse, self-harm, tantrums and eating disorders. NVR can be used with children from around 5 years old, up to, and including, adulthood. It also has proved effective with neuro atypical children/young people and with all kinds of family make-up, including foster and adoptive families.  

It is an empowered and dignified way to live one’s life. 

Course Overview

Working with a group will enable you to gain support from people who truly understand what you are dealing with. We have a limit of 7 screens, with either 1 or 2 people per screen, so we can give individual and tailored support to everyone.   

You will learn to: 

  • Take a firm stance against challenging behaviour 
  • De-escalate difficult situations 
  • Develop a robust network of supporters 
  • Improve your relationship with your child 
  • Become a positive, authoritative presence in your child’s life 

“The NVR practitioners are very warm and engaging and I have made significant improvements in helping my son's behaviour since starting NVR. The techniques have also helped me to improve my relationship with my daughter post divorce.”
