Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) is a programme aimed at parents with children displaying violent or aggressive behaviour. NVR involves a number of steps in order to resolve and prevent conflict in the home and reduce escalation of negative behaviour(s). Workshops require a commitment from parents over a minimum of six weeks in a peer support, confidential and experiential environment.
