Professional Development – Non-Violent Communication

Featuring: Shulamit Day Berlevtov

The Sexual Assault Network is offering a professional development day on Non-Violent Communication.

Compassionate communication, also known as Nonviolent Communication (NVC), was developed by clinical psychologist and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Dr. Marshall Rosenberg (www.nonviolentcommunication.com). NVC is a process and a paradigm for communication that focuses on the needs that are alive in each of us, thus fostering a shift from “right/wrong thinking” and defensiveness (both inner and outer) to connection with self and others. Communicating with a focus on needs leads to outcomes that enrich life and nurture the natural human impulse toward joyous giving. The skills learned in the workshop can be used in both our personal lives as well as the counselling process.

This introductory workshop includes experiential activities and presentation of theory. At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will have had introductory exposure to:

  • The heart of the NVC process and paradigm:  Needing
  • The context and four elements of the NVC process:  Observing, Feeling, Needing and Requesting
  • Two NVC dialogue processes

When: May 27, 2013 9:00 – 4:00

Cost: $50.00 for SAN Members or $70.00 for Non-Members
