This online training is an introduction to the theory and practice of Nonviolent Communication, with particular emphasis on key skill-building and foundational understanding as well as practices of mindfulness.
Nonviolent Communication (NVC), or Compassionate Communication, is a powerful tool for transforming and mediating interpersonal, intra-personal, organizational, and inter-group conflicts. It is used worldwide by activists, teachers, conflict specialists, doctors, diplomats, social workers, managers and others to improve their work and home life. The practice of NVC can help us understand ourselves more fully, provide us with a sense of power and choice in our lives, and open our hearts to compassionately connect and collaborate with others.
This is an interactive and beginner’s workshop designed for those that may have no to little prior studies of any special nonviolent communication. This workshop will expose participants to basic NVC strategies and skills that are used in the types of conflicts that might arise in your personal life as well as in other settings. You may want to try out new skills with family members, co-workers, and neighbors.
****As we prepare for the session, please identify a recent internal or external conflict that you are comfortable using as an example for our exercises.***
