Code: PRI/22/73 Non-Violent Restraint (NVR) advanced - Helping with anxiety (Cancelled)

NVR as an intervention for anxiety-related difficulties.


What is NVR?


NVR (Nonviolent Resistance) is widely known as an approach helpful to parents, carers and professionals when young people are acting in a violent, challenging and controlling way with high levels of risk to others and themselves.
As well as this, NVR has also been developed (pioneered by Haim Omer and Eli Lebowitz) as an approach for children and young people with wide range of anxious and avoidant patterns of behaviour, including OCD, self, harming, disordered eating and school non-attendance, which can also have a huge impact on the lives of the young people, their families and professional networks.
