Supporting Families with Child to Parent Violence- the Non Violent Resistance (NVR) Programme
Optional Fields
child to parent violence non violent resistance programme
The aim of this poster is to broaden discussions and increase awareness about an under-researched and under-reported form of violence and abuse in family systems called Child to Parent Violence or Parent Abuse - the use of violence by children and young people at home towards parents. Child to parent violence raises a variety of dilemmas and questions for practitioners and for researchers. Using case examples, the challenges and potential for the effective engagement and participation of parents in the innovative Non Violent Resistance (NVR) programme from Israel (Omer 2004; Weinblatt and Omer 2008) will be considered from agency and practitioner perspectives. The poster will include an outline of activities by the five nation, EU funded programme, Responding to Child to Parent Violence (RCPV). These activities include intervention programme development and research across all five partner countries, namely, Sweden, Ireland, Spain, Bulgaria and the UK. Delegates will be introduced to the potential for engaging and supporting parents living with child to parent violence through the Non Violent Resistance Programme as adapted in Ireland. This programme is an evidence based, innovative and short-term intervention that responds to the needs of parents in embattled systems while protecting children and responding to needs to agencies to assist and support families presenting with this form of family violence.
