Learn how to Manage Disruptive and Destructive Childhood Behaviours without pulling everyone into a never-ending Power Struggle.
Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) is a new, innovative approach to dealing with aggressive, harmful and self-destructive behaviour of children and adolescents. Deriving its methods from the principles of raising parental presence, de-escalation and reconciliation, NVR promotes constructive resistance to harmful behaviour, while seeking to support adults in reconnecting with their child and developing a non-punitive yet strong parental position.
Various NVR and Applied NVR programs exist for different target groups. Continue below by choosing your role: Clinician / Parent / Educator
Even though the course content is structured and sequential, sometimes you just want to know more about a certain topic. Each lecture includes a reflection assignment and the opportunity to ask questions that will be directly answered by your NVR Instructor.
“Incorporating the Applied NVR training called SPACE Treatment was the first revolutionary shift in treating anxiety and other difficult childhood behaviours I had come across for more than 15 years. The missing or underestimated concept of parental support for dealing with childhood behaviours is now found to be as efficacious as CBT alone.” – Chris de Feijter EdD.
This is the most impressive development of concepts and practices introduced in the first edition of Haim Omer's book. Particularly inspiring are the novel ways in which he applies the NVR approach to social systems, such as schools and communities. It is essential reading for parents and therapists alike!
If you are not already well-versed in Non-Violent Resistance – or New Authority, as it is also known as – this online course composed of Professor Haim Omer’s captivating video lectures is your best bet. Omer’s ideas are refreshing. They not only make sense, but also provide professionals with a wide variety of practical tools that empower them to help families struggling with serious problems that have up until these days been ignored or fallen between the cracks of social support systems.
Hearing about the core principles and practical tools of NVR in the voice of the person who founded the approach is an extraordinary treat! In this series of lectures, Haim speaks with candor, passion, and intimacy to share his experiences in developing and applying the powerful concepts of parental presence, non-escalation, vigilant care, new authority (and more) to give the listener a fantastic opportunity to learn from “the wisdom of an elder.” I predict that these presentations will become “classics” for all those interested in this incredibly generative work.
