NVR Training

NVR (Non Violent Resistance Training)


NVR training addresses violent, destructive and harmful behaviours in children and adolescents.


The methods and ideas of non-violent direct action and resistance from Mahatma Ghandi, Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks are used in community and family settings to help parents and carers with their parenting.


NVR can help parents and carers overcome their sense of helplessness. It can help develop a support network that will stop violent and destructive behaviours both in and out of the home. It  improves relationships between family members and the outside world. 


We are currently hoping to get new staff trained in delivering NVR so we can start running courses again. We will update this page when we have more information on when NVR courses will resume.


Parental Feedback


Parents who completed the course in the last academic year have stated the following:


“I did the NVR as a refresher course as I’d already completed the course previously. Although I went over the same things,  it was amazing to see that I have been using the NVR strategies successfully without realising! It’s always helpful to meet other parent/carers with similar struggles too because you help each other cope and rewire ourselves to rebuild connection before correction to ensure the NVR is successful. Both staff who taught the NVR, were always friendly and helpful. Never judgemental and gave helpful advice and strategies”        


“I did the NVR course and thoroughly enjoyed it. I learned lots of useful strategies that are very easy to apply. It has helped me improve my relationship with my autistic son and to understand  his challenges, more than before. It was also very supportive to meet other parents with the same kind of problems and we now socialise with our kids outside!                                     


“Well run and informative course. 10 out of 10. Lacey and Julie looked after us all and were very knowledgeable”
