Margaret Smith (Great Britain)
Denise Wilson and Margaret Smith have been responsible for introducing NVR into Southampton City they have trained over 40 professionals and parents to become NVR practitioners (level 3) including members of, Child Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), and Social Services. Over 30 NVR groups are now run per year within the city from early intervention to specialist autism groups.
Both Denise and Margaret are members of NVR UK and volunteer on the accreditation subcommittee to ensure quality standards of training are maintained across the UK. They have recently introduced NVR into a youth forensic hospital setting, using their business model of training a group of staff as NVR practitioners and then a smaller number of this group to a higher level so they can roll out training within the organisation.
