Course Information:

What is Connective Parenting (NVR)?

It’s a philosophy that was used by Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King amongst others within socio-political struggles. Developed by Professor Haim Omer to be used in family settings.

  • The approach is based on raising the presence of the parent/carer, rather than using consequences or trying to instill insight into the young person.
  • It’s a way of parenting that is child focused but not child centred. It focuses on changing the way the parent/carer interacts with their child rather than changing the child.
  • Sarah Fisher developed this into Connective Parenting and trained us in 2021.
  • Wakefield will be using the name Connective Parenting as it’s not just for families experiencing violence, it includes all families

Training Aims:

To understand:

  • The principles of Connective Parenting (NVR)
  • How it can help parents and carers to create connected relationships with their children
  • To give everyone the information, skills and tools of Connective Parenting to help embed it within the families, children and young people you are working with
