INTRODUCTION TO nonviolent resistance - virtual workshop facilitated by Elaine Nicholls NVR

  • A taster session to help you decide if NVR is right for you.

  • A refresher for those parents have completed an NVR course in the past and would appreciate the opportunity to reflect on the various elements that make up the approach.

  • All parents and carers are welcome.

  • We'll explore the various elements of NVR in turn, touch on some of the underlying values behind the approach, and think about some anonymised examples.

  • The cost is for up to two adults sharing one screen/device.

  • One to one tailored sessions available following the workshop. Adopters/special guardians may be eligible for support with costs through the adoption support fund. Reduced rates offered for self-funding parents/carers wherever possible.
