This conference presents a new and child-focused approach to re-parenting children who present an angry and aggressive response to those who care for them. Children who have had a traumatic start in life have many unmet needs which they cannot express.

The focus will be on Non Violent Resistance therapy which rebuilds the parent-child relationship through de-escalation, acceptance and reconciliation to allow the child's needs to be met through the love and care of the adoptive parent or carer. The voice of the adoptive parent will also form part of the day.


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.
