Here are some possibilities and examples for printed texts or social media to be published according to the 3 parts:



We welcome all forms of article in all languages. From a published article in a scientific journal to a project you started or a theoretical idea you might have. See below some examples:


  • An article published in an academic journal:

Dr. Ziv Gilad describes a pilot study comparing the behaviour of two groups of police officers in a simulated conflict situation; one had received training in NVR and CA and the other (the control group) had not. This interesting study has implications for the training of police especially where there is a climate of high conflict. Read it here (in German)


  • An abstract written about a project you initiated or an idea you might have:

The article ‘We have a dream – we are, where the youngsters are!’ describe a new education program assimilated in a closed residential youth care called IZEO. IZEO stands for Integrated Care and Education and intend to combine education and treatment in a way that enhances transparency, break the secrecy, create a safe environment and improves the support network through working alliances between colleagues. Read it here (in Dutch).  


Dr. Bart Colson tries to connect between the concept of New Authority and Attachment theory. The article starts with explaining the theoretical background of both concepts and how to combine them practically in a child psychiatric residential ward. Read here how the good old tool of the SMS (Silent Message Sending), was upgraded to an MMS: Mentalizing Message Sending. Read it here.

Vigilant Caretaking for Teenagers - Sven Bussens

The handbook combines the mindset of solution-focused with the concepts of ‘New Authority’ and NVR. The handbook defines various tools, language guidance, applications and techniques that can be employed in groups, but also in one-on-one sessions with parents. A description of the handbook titled ‘Waakzaam zorgen voor tieners’ is provided here by Sven Bussens.


’Non-Violent Resistance Innovations in Practice’ - Elisabeth Heismann Julia Jude & Elizabeth Day

This book presents the most updated information about NVR praxis and is professionally edited in the spirit and ideology of NVR. More than 15 different authors - academic researchers, NVR experts, first-time writers and parents have contributed to this book. Chapters on a range of topics serve as a handbook, present research, and provide new ideas and authentic experiences in working with NVR. The multicultural essence of NVR is exemplified not only by the collection of international contributors, but also by the variety of social and cultural contexts which they present. 
The book is divided into 5 sections and the richness of each of them can be demonstrated by a glimpse at the first section entitled ‘Emerging themes’. The section starts with Dr. Uri Weinblatt’s article - ‘Regulating shame in NVR’, an examination of how feelings of shame can be the focus of NVR interventions. Dr. Weinblatt demonstrates how NVR interventions can regulate feelings of shame of adolescents and their parents. Indeed, dealing with feelings might be the heart and soul of our work, but how can we know if we’re going on the right direction? Keep on reading and you’ll end this section of the book with the chapter – ‘More than just a good idea? From practice to scientific underpinning’. You’ll find here a comprehensive academic review of the literature written by Prof. Frank Van Holen & Prof. Johan Vanderfaeilie, by far the most prolific and critical academic researchers in our field.  The first section establishes the spirit of the book, where the insights of clinicians, the contributions of researchers and the personal experiences of individuals in the field are sure to inform, inspire and engage the reader!

Case studies

Had an interesting case working with NVR? This is the place to share it and gain also feedback about it from other professionals. Don’t forget to put your e-mail there…!

Wil van Nus describes two cases of young people who refuse school for a longer or shorter time are described. Both seem to have originated from and maintained by contextual factors (parents, school). In one case the student returns to school by means of the interventions of NVR, in the other case the effect is recovery of the relationship between parent and child, while schooling is not yet feasible.
