The ‚Sit – In‘: Creating change by presence

The ‚Sit – In‘: Creating change by presence
We will start the workshop with explaining the important role of the Sit-In and why it can be defined as the flagship of our NVR tool set. Through screening the socio-cultural origins of the Sit-In, we will first learn how an NVR struggle can be successful and what might be the pitfalls on the way to success. The next stage of the workshop will focus on the practical ‘know-how’ concerning the Sit-In and its use in different settings – home, schools and youth-care facilities. Through clinical examples, case studies and role-plays the participants will learn how to use a Sit-In at home and how teachers can initiate a Sit-In when an intervention is needed. We will also learn how a Sit-In is acted in residential youth care and why our protocol in Israel changed from the ‘Sit-In’ concept to the ‘SMS’ concept (SMS= Silent Message Sending).

Format: Workshop • Focus: Methods of NVR and NA
