We offer all of the below as bespoke in-house training or as remote training for organisations, please enquire for more information.
Foundation Level Training (3 days) £350 per person
This foundation level training leads to the practitioners operating at the level of NVR Informed practice as laid out by NVR UK handbook (see table for details). Some children, for a whole host of reasons, do not respond to the rewards and punishment styles of parenting and when this is the case parents can feel helpless and blamed by those around them. NVR offers a way of parenting these children.
The training covers the foundations of Non Violent Resistance (NVR) leading to an understanding of the core principles and applying these to your practice. The primary goal of the NVR intervention is to repair and rebuild relationships that have become stressed by the child’s controlling behaviour. The participants will learn how to help their clients understand these behaviours and learn strategies for challenging and changing these behaviours.
At the end of level one, two formative pieces of reflective writing will be submitted before progressing to level 2.
Level 2 Application of NVR Practice (3 days) £450 per person
This second level promotes a deeper understanding of the core principles, and how NVR can be integrated with other theoretical concepts to be applied clinically to the following areas:
– Working with schools ( including school refusal) and communities.
– Anxiety in individuals and groups.
– Internet Safety.
– Residential Settings
– Foster Carers and Adoptive Parents.
– In Groups and with individuals.
On completion of this level the delegate will be able to continue to use the ideas to inform their everyday practice and in addition they will be able to support an Accredited NVR Practitioner run groups for parents.

The delegate will undertake a work based practice project that is supervised by the trainers . In order to gain the NVR UK Practitioner award you will need to complete and pass a presentation, create a resource, produce a reflective portfolio, and write a 2,000 word essay.
