Children who have had a traumatic start in life have many unmet needs which they cannot express. Their inability to relate to their adopters, carers or peers results in frustration, aggression and all too frequent violent responses that hide their vulnerability and overwhelm those who would care for them.

The child-focused approach of Non Violent Resistance therapy (NVR) rebuilds the relationship through de-escalation, acceptance and reconciliation to allow the child's needs to be met through the love and care of unconditional positive regard.

The speaker

Dr Peter Jakob has worked as a Clinical Psychologist and Family Therapist in both CAMHS and Adult Mental Health for more than 30 years.

He specialises in children and families involved with child protective services and has in-depth knowledge of treating trauma as the after-effect of abuse, neglect and domestic violence.

The first person to use Non Violent Resistance in the UK, Peter has adapted the approach for heavily traumatised, multi-stressed families.
