What we do Families Parenting programmes Non Violent Resistance course The NVR is specifically designed for responding effectively to aggressive, violent, self-destructive and controlling behaviour in children (from age 11), adolescents and young adults. The course runs for 10-12 weeks and is effective in improving the behaviour of young people, reducing parent/carer's feelings of hopelessness and raising confidence -bringing a more peaceful atmosphere in the family. “The NVR classes have changed my life and my sons. We have a good family life now and have build bridges between me and my son; so we can have fab memories and most importantly, the violence is very rare -but I now have the tools to manage him.” Feedback from a parent Referral Form 2020 NVR programme datesTimes: 10:00 - 12:00 14th January to 24th March 12th May to 14th July 15th September to 24 November Comments from parents/carers: I have carried so much guilt around me and feel I have let my children down but just listening to other parents and identifying some of the possible causes of my daughters behaviour gives me hope of reaching out to her. I can't wait for the next session -already thinking differently and of how I can begin to connect with my teenager again.
