Nonviolent Communication: Finding Solutions


Nonviolent Communication (NVC) supports natural conflict resolution by refocusing attention on what we share in common, instead of on where we disagree. Instead of focusing on resolving a problem, we focus on what human needs are ‘on the table.’ Experience with NVC predicts this will lead to resolving conflicts so that everybody’s needs are met. NVC skills help us be more of the natural mediators that we all are. This Zoom class provides content and practice with the powerful 4-Step NVC methodology to refocus attention. Morning and afternoon sessions support deeper learning, yet each class can stand alone. Breakout room experiences are planned to support skills integration. Classes should have impact whether you identify as a new or seasoned NVC practitioner.
