Question from Community Care – Peace Dividend

Peace dividend

By Peter Jakob

* Non violent resistance helps parents develop a support network within the community to resist controlling behaviours by their violent child. Why is this necessary to promote change? Discuss how families become isolated in neighbourhoods with high levels of socio-economic deprivation, and how their child’s violence further contributes to the isolation.

* Foster carers are often initially confident in looking after an aggressive child, but later feel they cannot maintain the young person in their care. Which processes can lead to foster carers feeling disempowered in the face of such difficult behaviours? What factors have you found can reverse this process?

GUIDE TIME FOR DISCUSSION: 30 minutes per question
