From young age we have been educated to compete, judge, criticise and demand, often communicating in unhelpful ways that create misunderstanding, distrust and frustration, which can lead to emotional or physical violence.
Nonviolent Communication is a powerful communication tool that can help you to transform your relationships with other people, and even with yourself. It enables you to shift from a world of blame, judgment and conflict, to a world of empathy, honesty, clarity and empowerment.
In this workshop we will explore the basic concepts, attitudes, practices and skills of NVC and we will practice using NVC to:
– make requests that are more likely to be accepted
– be honest without hurting or insulting
– transform patterns of thinking that lead to anger, guilt or shame
