NVR Coaching for Parents or Caregivers – Make a Referral

PartnershipProjects are pleased to have been able to provide industry-leading NVR Coaching to thousands of families since our inception in 2006.

Support is tailored to each family’s individual needs. Our accredited NVR practitioners bring their in-depth experience and practice in applying the Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) approach through systemic and trauma-focused therapy to help families overcome their young person’s aggressive and/or controlling and harmful behaviours.  NVR supports parents to help manage the effects of childhood trauma, levels of anxiety or Adult Entrenched Dependency (AED).


Why do we call it NVR Coaching for Parents and not NVR Training for Parents?

We will often hear people asking for Non-Violent Resistance Training for Parents. At PartnershipProjects we feel NVR Coaching is the more appropriate term to use as we will support and “coach” families through the NVR principles and tailor our support to match a family’s individual needs. We do not offer generic NVR training for parents as we feel this is unethical – NVR is not a manualised approach, there is not one set of instructions that fits all. We will work closely with and guide a family for what will provide the best results specifically for them.

We specialise in the following areas of work:

  • Aggressive, harmful, or self-destructive behaviour, including serious behaviour problems in children and young people, including young people who may be at risk of sexual exploitation, also in conjunction with specific diagnoses such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and/or Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
  • Severe anxiety in children and young people, especially when there is a refusal to cooperate in treatment, obsessive-compulsive behaviour, social withdrawal, and internet addiction.
  • Young / mature adults showing entrenched dependency, often in conjunction with severe and enduring mental health problems and/or substance misuse
  • Difficulties relating to serious trauma, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Attachment difficulties and problems relating to childhood abuse and neglect
  • Children and young people looked after in foster care or residential services

We work in a variety of settings, including directly with the family, foster care, residential services, schools, and the community. Our interventions always take the wider social environment into account, including involving external family members, the community, and professional networks.  

The NVR approach draws from many relevant and evidence-based therapies, including Solution-Focussed Brief Therapy (SFBT), Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE) and Narrative Therapy, and therapies with application to anxiety and trauma, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focussed Therapy, and EMDR.

Our referral pathway is robust and thorough, once the referral has been approved, we match our highly skilled and qualified practitioners with a family.   Our practitioners are accredited by the NVR Association (NVRA) and have many years of experience in their chosen discipline. This includes Highly Specialist Systemic Family Therapists and Highly Specialist or Clinical Psychologists, social workers, and teachers.  

Families can be supported for any timeframe as needed; from as little as 3 months to 12 months and beyond.
