❀ How to stand clearly for our boundaries without using threat, punishment, or reward.
❀ And more . . .
Nonviolent Communication (NVC)
NVC is a simple, powerful and practical tool that helps us to 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 to create heartfelt connection and cooperation that is based on intrinsic motivation from both sides.
The Connecting with Children course is for parents, teachers, grandparents – anyone who spends time with children. We will use Marshall Rosenberg’s “nonviolent communication” model (NVC). It will suit those with no previous experience with NVC, as well as those with experience who would like to deepen their focus while using NVC with children.
* The course provides a child-free learning environment to honour many students’ needs for focus, concentration, relaxation and learning.Group
Jorinde Rapsey: What I love about NVC is that it continually supports me to build my capacity for self connection and helps me to speak from the heart to people around me. For me, NVC awareness serves as a concrete practical tool, supporting my lifelong learning journey to see I have a choice when challenging moments arise. It is my pleasure and my privilege to offer NVC as an exploration to others.
Jim Lovell-Smith: NVC enhances my relationships with my wife, Valerie, my siblings, my friends, my grandchildren and my students. NVC also supported my communication with workmates, customers and suppliers in my last years of working as a project engineer (mechanical). I’m delighted to be finding NVC helpful in changing the way I talk to myself, allowing me to be kinder and more self-accepting.
Valerie Wycoff: My mission is to empower you to more fully love, accept, and enjoy your life, and to joyfully support you with the changes you wish to make to your habits (habits includes your ways of relating to self and/or others, your voice, or your movement). My curiosity about people, relationships, emotion, breath, voice, and body has been life-long. I work with adolescents and with adults of all ages right into their senior years.
