Increasingly practitioners are encountering child to parent violence and abuse as a key issue in therapeutic and emergency practice. With limited literature and research available, it has been extremely challenging for practitioners to respond to the needs of these families. Labels and diagnoses can be distracting and divert attention from the very immediate threat of family violence. Currently there are extremely long wait lists for assessments and this can allow the violence to become ingrained in the family.
Therapeutic treatment tends to focus on the young person and their behaviour, yet the young person may refuse to engage with services or face a long wait for assessment. NVR is an immediate intervention that empowers parents/carers to positively influence the climate in their homes even without the engagement of the young person.
NVR compliments other interventions and can be used simultaneously with other interventions as part of an integrated family service.
