What is Non Violent Resistance?
Non Violent Resistance (NVR) is an innovative form of systemic family therapy, which has been developed for aggressive, violent, controlling and self-destructive behaviour in young people. We have been the first to use this approach in Britain, and have adapted it to families involved with Social Services, and for Looked After Children.*
High efficacy and very low drop-out rates make this a very efficient and cost-saving approach for CAMHS clinicians and professionals in Social Services or the independent sector. Working with NVR can help prevent family or placement breakdown.

Training & Workshops
PartnershipProjects offers a programme of introductory and specialist workshops. We are leaders in our field, and offer a Certificate Course in Non Violent Resistance (NVR), which is a structured course consisting of Foundation & Advanced level modules; ultimately leading to the PartnershipProjects Advanced Certificate in NVR Practice.
The NVR Certificate Course
As the first UK training provider to offer a comprehensive NVR course, we have the greatest experience in training professionals in the UK and abroad. The Certificate Course enables participants to develop the core knowledge and skills that are necessary to competently use this intervention for violence, aggression, controlling, destructive and harmful behaviour in the family, school and community.
