Description: If you are human then you have probably experienced communication challenges with other humans. Maintaining healthy boundaries, expressing feelings and needs, using conflict constructively, finding the right words – these are not easy tasks!
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a philosophy and practice of relating to oneself and to others. Rooted in a spirit of empathy, NVC offers simple, profound methods for strengthening awareness, boundaries, compassion, and respect.
Trauma can try to inhibit self-expression – perhaps through withdrawing, reacting, losing touch with self, losing words, or finding unhelpful words. If any of these sound familiar, NVC can help you bring more ease and confidence to your communication.
This group includes a range of structured activities, skill practices, and games. You will get many opportunities to explore how NVC can enrich communication in your life. You are likely to have fun and empower yourself along the way.
The series consists of 8 classes. Over time we may add additional class series with new, different NVC activities to support those who wish to further deepen their NVC skills.
