What is Nonviolent Communication?
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a simple, effective and learnable four step process developed in 1964 by psychologist Marshall Rosenberg PhD (shown above).
It has been used successfully around the world to resolve conflicts and to deepen connections in personal relationships, schools, hospitals, corporations and governments. It is an emotionally-intelligent, awareness-based communication approach.
Serving connection through language choice
For many of us, learning how to speak and listen NONVIOLENTLY is about learning how to listen and how to speak DIFFERENTLY. Learning to understand WHAT you want to mean requires learning HOW to mean. Sharing our meaning with others is mostly done with the words we use. The words which we choose have the power to impact both the way we see ourselves and others, and the way others see us. Our interactions can be enriched and be more satisfying when we understand the power of the language of connection. As a linguist working in the university sector for the past 30 years, I would like to share my wonderful NVC language journey. I want others to experience the beauty of language and how it serves our connection.
If you are interested in how to mean differently, Coaching2Clarity will give you a language learning perspective for your journey of learning to communicate with compassion and empathy.
Understand the difference between observations vs evaluations, feelings vs faux feelings; needs vs strategies; and requests vs demands.
Come and meet like-minded people, share your insights and challenges, and develop a language toolkit that will support you in compassionate communication.
Check out our online, self-paced courses and teacher-led offerings on our website. We offer NVC Foundation courses, Practice Groups and NVC Language Learning tutorials. Experience lots of practice in a safe, supportive environment with like-minded peers.
Special Advance Training Weekend 17 & 18 July
“Applying Your NVC Skills and Navigating Common Challenges” This unique 2 day course is only held once a year and is specifically developed for those who have completed the Foundation Level course. You will build skills to recognise and move through common challenges with compassion for yourself and others, you’ll learn phrases and transformative processes so you feel more comfortable and confident to speak your authentic truth and learn more about power and connecting across differences in ways that take you to another level.
Do You :
Struggle to make the NVC language your own? Find yourself falling back on a ‘Fixing’ approach? Find that empathy and compassion in some situations are just not forthcoming? Have trouble managing other people’s expectations? Feel resentful if your family and friends don’t take NVC on board?
Then this course is for you
This two day course will enable you to build on your NVC skills expanding your knowledge and experience and grow confidence as you find your natural voice.
Your training location is in the breathtaking hinterland of Byron Bay, where nature is all encompassing. This peaceful backdrop will help you to both relax and focus your energy into your training.
Paulette Bray-Narai is a parent, a partner and an Internationally certified NVC trainer with over 15 years experience in facilitating NVC trainings, mediation and restorativejustice.
