Nonviolent Communication (NVC)
NVC is a simple, powerful, practical tool that helps us see clearly what blocks our communication, and what we can do differently to manifest and live our deepest values with children.
NVC shows us a way how to create sustainable connection and cooperation that is based on intrinsic motivation from both sides.
We will focus on the coming skills
How to transform conflict into dialogues with understanding and connection (from both sides)
How to hear and understand what your child is REALLY saying, no matter how he/she expresses it (empathic listening)
How to stand clearly for our boundaries without using threats or punishments
How to move from being a policeman/policewoman, into just being humans together
How to practice self-care while caring for my child(ren)/family
And we will focus on the coming skills:
❀ How to transform anger into connection (from both sides)
❀ Empathic listening- how to hear what your child is saying, no matter how they express it
❀ How to deeply listen to ourselves, to the depth of what is important to us, and how to communicate that in a way that fosters compassion and cooperation
❀ How to stand clearly for our boundaries without using threats or punishments
❀ How to create peaceful dialogues that include and connect us all
❀ And more and more…
The ‘Connecting with Children is similar in content to the Basic course, so it both fits people with no previous experience with NVC as well as for people with experience who would like to deepen their Embodiment and / or longing to focus on using NVC with children.
In an interactive and safe learning environment, we will be invited to work on examples from our own life. We will practice “Nonviolent Communication” through demonstrations, role-playing and exercises in order to integrate the NVC values and language more in our own daily lives.
* The course provides a child-free learning environment to honor many students’ needs for focus, concentration, relaxation and learning.
