Jim and I recommend you consider this course with colleagues Sally Prebble and Jorinde Rapsey.
Visit Sally and Jorinde’s website PEACETALKS for fuller details.
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.
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.
Sally Prebble: What I love about NVC is that it provides a powerful tool for individual growth and for bringing about transformation within relationships. I am passionate about sharing NVC as a way to deepen our connection, compassion and empathy with children so that we can truly hear the needs beneath their behaviour. I have found it to be one of the best and simplest methods for restoring harmony, creating real understanding and finding solutions that work during difficult times.
