The NVR Certificate Course: Foundation Level Handbook
This Handbook is designed to support and to enhance the PartnershipProjects Foundation Level training in NVR. This provides additional narrative and theory around the core principles and methods of the approach and their roots in the socio-political arena of the 20th Century. The principles and methods described can be used by practitioners to support any adult who is caring for a young person who is behaving in a harmful or destructive way either within the family, or in settings such as schools, in-patient units and care homes.
Executive Summary: Non Violent Resistance – a systemic treatment for harmful, destructive and self-destructive behaviours.
Non Violent Resistance (NVR) is a multi-modal systemic, family- and community-based form of intervention for serious behaviour problems in young people, for harmful and self-destructive behaviour, for self-harm, anxiety disorders and for entitled dependency of younger adults upon their parents.

The NVR Certificate Course: Advanced Level Manual
This manual reflects PartnershipProjects advanced level training in NVR. The principles and methods that are introduced in this training module have been specifically developed for helping parents or other caregivers who have experienced trauma, or who are looking after children who have experienced trauma. However, we have found over time that they have wide application and can be useful in working with NVR regardless of the severity of the problem, or whether or not family members have experienced serious trauma.
Context, the magazine for family therapy and systemic practice in the UK. Issue 175 (June 2021) is dedicated to International NVR: Practice and Participation. Many of our PartnershipProjects associates contributed to its content.
