Masterclass ‘Imaginary Processes in NVR Therapy’

London, 19th & 20th October 2022

Parents with children that show severe aggressive, anxious and dismissive behaviour can feel that their efforts are met with a chronic absence of reciprocity. In addition, feelings of shame and isolation add to the complexity of their situation. These parents tend to get stuck in a state of detachment, estranged from the experience of ‘mattering’ in the lives of their children and their adult environment. As therapists and counsellors, dealing with so few positive interactions, we tend to get swallowed into a similar experience of frustration and hopelessness.

During these two practise-based days, you will be invited into co-authoring new narratives of preferred futures with parents, by using a variety of methods to stimulate imaginary processes and creative conversations. These new and significant interventions help parents overcome erasure in the Non Violent Resistance process and offer a much more hopeful trajectory.

“How can we stimulate more constructive relational expectations?

How can these experiences become precedents for building one sided action that actually supports change?

Why does imagination matter?”

Building on their own unique and shared therapeutic approaches, Peter Jakob and Willem Beckers aim to expand freedom of movement for you and the families you are working with.

Dr. Peter Jakob is a consultant clinical psychologist, systemic family therapist and Clinical Director of PartnershipProjects. He has introduced Non Violent Resistance to the UK and is known as a prolific international presenter.

Willem Beckers is a systemic psychotherapist and staff member at Interactie-Academie (Belgium) and an international associate trainer for PartnershipProjects UK, specialising in child to parent violence and working with parents of (young) adult children with entrenched dependence.
