Nonviolent Communication (NVC) emerged from the founders work with civil rights activists in the 1960’s and is now active in over 65 countries. NVC creates a path for healing and reconciliation in its many applications, ranging from intimate relationships, work settings, health care, social services, police, correctional facilities, to governments, schools and social change organizations.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn the four components of nonviolent communication: Observation, Feelings, Needs, and Request.
  2. Practice identifying feelings and needs within one self and in others. We all share the same, basic human needs, and that each of our actions are a strategy to meet one or more of these needs. People who practice NVC have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepening connection and conflict resolution.
  3. Examine conflicts from our experience and from what we may experience in our forthcoming work. 
  4. Identify shared values and characteristics of healthy and unhealthy relationships. 

To maximize use of training objectives come prepared to share yourself and actively engage the practice of these skills!
