Developed by Haim Omer and his team, Non Violent Resistance (NVR) is a new, innovative approach to dealing with aggressive, harmful and self-destructive behaviour. Deriving its methods from the principles of raising parental presence, de-escalation and reconciliation, NVR promotes constructive resistance to harmful behaviour, while seeking to support adults in reconnecting with their child and developing a non-punitive yet strong parental position.
