Non-violent resistance booklets for parents & siblings

Non-violent resistance (NVR) addresses violent, destructive and harmful behaviours in children and adolescents. NVR can help parents and carers overcome their sense of helplessness. It can help develop a support network that will stop violent and destructive behaviours both in and out of the home. It can improve relationships between family members and the outside world.
