Event description

Description

Are you interested finding a different approach to communication based on nonviolence and collaboration rather than confrontation and conflict? Have you heard about Compassionate Communication or Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and been curious about how it works?

This workshop will introduce you to the key concepts of Compassionate Communication through participatory exercises where you experience the concepts in action. The seminal book on Compassionate Communication is Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life by Marshall Rosenberg, which provides a framework for establishing empathetic connections between people that can support deep conversations supporting collaboration and defusing conflict.

At the conclusion of this workshop you will know the basic ideas of Compassionate Communication and will have experienced it for yourself. The intention is to provide you with enough information so you can decide if you want to invest the time to learn the skills needed to use Compassionate Communication in your life.
