Introduction to NVC (Nonviolent Communication) based on Marshall Rosenberg’s work

About this Event

Learn the basics of Nonviolent Communication and how to communicate with Empathy in this 45 minute Pay-What-You-Can webinar.

Most people have not had an opportunity to develop a vocabulary of needs and feelings that build confidence and self esteem. This can foster more ease and harmony, create clear and respectful boundaries and opportunities to establish relationships that thrive and flourish. Hear all about it in this webinar. Relationships don’t have to be so difficult.

Learn about the practical application of:

  • Nonviolent Communication by Marshall Rosenberg
  • Conflict Prevention Skills

When something happens in our outer world that has a strong emotional charge, the brain takes a snapshot of it, which is called a memory. In neuroscience, there is a process when neurons that fire together wire together creating new neural pathways. There is also a process called pruning, which results in the uncoupling of established neural connections. In this webinar, we will do a simple exercise that can prune neural connections that are in the way of care, kindness, and compassion.

Neurons are nerve cells that are electrically charged, and you will get a delightful jolt out of seeing the power of listening, really listening.

The mission of TRF is to introduce respectful communication skills by introducing the fundamentals of Nonviolent Communication, which can empower individuals to articulate their needs and feelings without blame and judgment, and to listen empathically. This work allows individuals to thrive and improve their behavioral, academic, and life outcomes. We envision a nationwide movement that establishes relationship education as a core component of the learning process, creating a climate of empathic human connection. Through our work, we introduce a communication skillset so that organizations and schools can thrive and flourish, and where students (and adults) feel safe and the school to prison pipeline can diminish.
