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.
→ How to connect with children?
→ How to practically be the change you want to see in the world- live the values you long to live.
→ How to understand what is REALLY going on in children?
→ How to keep the clarity that taking care of me is part of the child’s well being (put the oxygent mask first on you, and then on your child)
→ Moving from needing to ‘educate children’ to just being ourselves (Honest and Empathic). Moving from being a policeman/policewoman, into just being humans together
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...
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.
