All too often, the words we express create walls when we were hoping for connection or understanding. This workshop provides practices to integrate the principles and processes of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) to help us say the hard stuff without poking the finger of blame.
NVC is recognized internationally as a process for clarifying and living one’s values, an effective process for conflict resolution, a powerful tool for social change, and a language of compassion for any life situation. In a fun, lively, and supportive environment, we integrate practices that support you to examine the way you think, communicate, and relate to yourself and others in your life; to liberate you from judging self and others, taking things personally, acting from fear, duty, obligation, and guilt, and suffering in anger and depression. These practices also support us in:
· Expressing ourselves honestly without blame, shame, or criticism
· Hearing others' pain without trying to fix them
· Creating new strategies that meet core needs
· Becoming more effective at everything we do
Those in the helping and healing professions will find this approach especially beneficial in working with clients and patients.
