Training Nonviolent resistance: Advanced

Curriculum with
Dr. Irit Schorr-Sapir, Tal Fisher & Dr. Philip Streit

Nonviolent resistance is becoming more and more popular. In the meantime, it’s used and implemented in schools, municipalities, socio-pedagogical and socio-therapeutic institutions, educational institutions and corporations. Parents, educators and teachers everywhere adapt this pedagogical style and have a lot of success with it! Schools, for example, register a drastic decline in cases of skipping school on a regular basis, mobbing and other dysfunctional behaviour. The concept of nonviolent resistance, which was originally described by Haim Omer, is among other things, based on the social-political ideas and practice of the nonviolent resistance of Mahatma Ghandi. Originally it was intended to be used by families in which the conflict between parents and their kids with behavioural problems escalates and the parental presence is lost. During the development of the concept it was more and more clear that this would rather be a systemic concept, used not only by the core family.

NVR can be used in a manifold of contexts. This is what the advanced course is all about. You will learn how the concept of NVR is used for schools, institutions and foster families and how it is used at management level and in municipalities. Also you will hear how recently NVR is used at the treatment of anxiety and hyper activity.  After the course you will also receive a certificate. Graduates of the Basic and Advanced course are certified advisors of NVR enabled by the NVR School and the Akademie für Kind,  Jugend und Famile.

Not only can you use NVR but you can also advise your peers.

Following topics will be discussed in theory and practice

• NVR and school

• NVR and foster families

• NVR in municipalities

• NVR in leadership

• NVR and anxiety, obsessions and hyper activity
