VIRTUAL CE PROGRAM
Wednesday May 19th, 2021 – 9:00am to 1:00pm EST
From Behavior to Presence: Non-Violent Resistance Therapy (NVR)
Presenter: Dr. Peter Jakob & Dan Dulberger
*for full bios see below
About This Course: NVR is a form of systemic family therapy, originally developed to help families respond more effectively to aggressive, violent, harmful, or self-destructive behavior in children. NVR helps clinicians and caregivers recover their diminished sense of agency regarding their young and adult children. This introductory level program will demonstrate how clinicians, can use NVR to help caregivers’ access, increase, and capitalize on their presence, regardless of the child’s level of participation.
1. Differentiate ‘resisting’ from ‘winning’ when facilitating parental presence to change interaction patterns, develop new authority and new autonomy in the family, school, or residential setting.
2. Identify how to generate responsiveness between parent or another caregiver and child.
3. Develop an understanding of how reconciliation is promoted in the facilitation of non-punitive parenting.
4. Develop an understanding of community as a resource for overcoming secrecy and isolation and building a social support network for the family.
Participants must mark attendance, attend entire session, & participate in all activities, to receive CEs and certificate.

Peter Jakob, PhD
Peter Jakob lives and practices in the United Kingdom. He has been working in child- and adolescent mental health and in adult mental health systems as a licensed clinical psychologist and systemic family therapist for over 37 years. Much of this work has been undertaken in support of child protection, involving difficulties relating to child sexual and physical abuse or neglect, parents’ mental health, drug and alcohol misuse problems, domestic violence, and very serious trauma. These areas of interest led Dr. Jakob to develop service models for effective interagency working in child protection and child in need contexts.
In this capacity, he has introduced Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) to the UK. Dr. Jakob has developed an adaptation of the approach to working with serious trauma in families and unmet needs of children with high ACEs, especially for multi-stressed families, adoptive families, and foster- or residential care environments.
