Porto, Portugal
Conference Paper
Optional Fields
Child-to-parent violence and abuse (CPVA) involves parents who live in fear of their child under the age of 18 years. This interactive workshop explores practitioners’ perceptions of Non Violent Resistance (NVR) as a response to the problem of CPVA in Ireland. NVR is evidence based, non-blaming, systemic and relatively short-term intervention model that empowers parents and practitioners to take action in response to CPVA while respecting and protecting children and adults. Inter-active methods will encourage participants in the workshop to ‘think through’ the implications of the NVR model for practice and research (focusing on the Support Network). There will also be a question and answer section where the facilitator and workshop participants discuss research/ intervention methods and dilemmas that emerged during the earlier parts of the workshop.
