Non Violent Resistance UK. Peaceful Opposition.

We aim to spread the word about the benefits of NVR, champion its delivery and, by means of research, continue to raise the standard of practitioners in the UK.

The NVR Tree

NVR stands for Non Violent Resistance and was originally developed as an approach to parenting and caring for those young people who are violent, risk taking, aggressive or self-destructive. The technique is now being used in a variety of settings including work in communities and schools and also with adults.

Please explore our NVR tree, the roots represent the founders, activists and leaders in NVR movements, the leaves and trunks the approaches, principles and methods that underpin Non Violent Resistance to support families and caregivers. Rollover the leaves for more information on each of the areas.

“We commit to the principles of NVR in our life and work. In the spirit of Ghandi, Martin Luther King and others we support each other in the promotion and the dissemination of the NVR attitude in ourselves, in families, schools, communities, organizations and in the political sphere. We raise our voice and take a stand for a responsible leadership in an open and transparent manner.”
