We are running a pilot Non-violence resistant training (NVR) ‘light’ course for foster carers across 6 weeks from November to January
Non-violence resistant is a therapeutic approach to reducing the instances of aggressive and/or violent behaviour from children and young people towards their carers.
We want to offer an introduction to the principles which underpin NVR and to support carers in making sense of aggressive/violent behaviour their children and young people display.
Each week we will go through an NVR principle and corresponding techniques which may help to reduce escalations of aggression and violence in the home.
By the end of the training, we hope to have provided you with the tools to make sense of why aggression and violence can occur and escalate from young people towards their carers. We also aim to provide you with techniques to reduce escalation of aggression and techniques to facilitate the ‘resistance’ of violence in the home.
