Abstract:

Als leerkracht heb je je handen vol aan oppositioneel gedrag en agressie in de klas. Hoe kun je vorm geven aan de gezagsrol zonder terug te keren naar de klassieke top-down-autoriteit? Verbindend gezag, gebaseerd op principes van geweldloos verzet, biedt je een heldere visie en concrete handvatten om dit te bereiken.

Abstract:

Klinisch psycholoog Eliane Wiebenga werkt in haar praktijk
in het Haarlemse Lorentzhuis met gezinnen die ontwricht zijn
door intern huiselijk geweld, waar bestaande therapieën niet of
onvoldoende hielpen. Ze maakt hierbij gebruik van zogeheten
gezagstherapie, die zich richt op herstel van het (ouderlijk) gezag
op een niet-autoritaire, niet-demoniserende manier. De inspiratie
hiervoor komt van de Israëlische hoogleraar Haim Omer.
Wiebenga typeert het als ‘bemiddelen via de meest willige partij’.

Abstract:

Psychotherapists working in the Dutch mental health care system (GGZ) for
youth are often confronted with parents who feel terrorized by their child.
The externalizing or internalizing problem behaviour that these children exhibit makes them feel helpless and desparate. Regular escalations combined with children unmotivated to seek help results in both parents and carers veering towards using classic authority based on punishment, force and pressure. The focus of this article is on a new way of looking at authority: connecting authority. The authors link the search for authority to the correlation between authority and forming one’s identity as well as to societal changes in the past decades, giving rise to tensions between authority and attachment. Connecting authority is based on the principles of nonviolent resistance and performs the seemingly impossible task of uniting extremes: hierarchical difference with relational proximity, a loving environment with clear boundaries, resisting the unacceptable behaviour with belief in the other’s potential. This is conveyed in a practical way, as a method that provides anchor points for parents and therapists in their difficult and paradoxical quest to integrate connection with authority, in case of
serious behavioural problems, as well as for ordinary educational issues.

Abstract:

Parent training in nonviolent resistance was adapted to deal with situations of suicide
threat by children, adolescents, and young adults. The approach aims at reducing the risk
potential and the mutual distress surrounding the threat-interaction. Parent training in
nonviolent resistance has been shown to help parents move from helplessness to presence,
from isolation to connectedness, from submission to resistance, from escalation to self-
control, and from mutual distancing and hostility to care and support. Those emphases
can be crucial for the diminution of suicide risk. Parents show good ability to implement
the approach and report gains on various areas over and beyond the reduction in suicide
threat. A particular advantage is that the method can be used also in cases where the
young person threatening suicide is not willing to cooperate.

gabbebookHaim Omers Konzept der neuen Autorität und die Bin-dungstheorie lassen sich wirksam verknüpfen. Wie man Anker richtig setzt und die elterliche und professionelle Präsenz stärkt, zeigt dieser Band. Haim Omers Konzept der neuen Autorität und die Bindungstheorie: Was haben diese Ideen gemein-sam, wie universell sind sie? Wie können gute Beziehungen im Spannungsfeld von Autonomie und Bindung gestaltet werden? Wo bleibt das Kind im gewaltlosen Widerstand? Welche Rolle spielt die Ankerfunktion in der elterlichen und professionel-len Präsenz? Renommierte deutsche und internationale systemisch orientierte Psychotherapeuten und Forscher setzen sich mit dem praktischen Nutzen der verschiedenen Theorieansätze auseinander. Eine Fundgrube für Therapeuten und Berater, die Familien in Schief- und Notlagen unterstützen und oft mit Autonomie-, Bindungs- und Autoritätsproblemen konfrontiert sind!

Abstract:

Non Violent Resistance (NVR) is a therapeutic approach towards violent, aggressive, controlling and self-destructive behaviour, initially developed for responding to these behaviours in young people. Based on working with children who have experienced child abuse, this paper introduces the author’s integration of child-focused family therapy and NVR, its theoretical background, ethos and methodological applications.

Abstract:

Inspired by the methods and underlying principles of nonviolent resistance in the socio-political sphere, Non Violent Resistance (NVR) as a therapeutic approach supports parents, carers and the community in resisting aggressive, violent and self-destructive behaviour in young people. Multi-stressed families with histories of trauma and difficult social relationships often experience high levels of such problem behaviour. Read more

Abstract:

Parents of violent children, who underwent training in nonviolent resistance (NVR), were compared with a wait-list control. Each parent reported on him/herself as well as on the other parent. Although both parents reported significant improvements in measures of parental helplessness, only fathers reported significant improvements on three scales measuring parent-child escalation processes, namely, power-struggles, parental submission, and negative feelings. Mothers were found to suffer more than fathers from escalating conflicts with the child both at the beginning and the end of treatment. Although fathers reported that escalation of both parents with the child lessened with treatment, mothers witnessed no significant improvements. Results were interpreted as showing that the special plight of mothers poses a still unmet challenge to NVR and probably to other modalities of parent training.
