NVC Workshop (Nonviolent Communications)
Misunderstanding, frustrations, anger, depression and sometimes violence can ensue when we communicate with judgement. NVC transforms the thinking, language and moralistic judgments into one which enriches the relationships you dream of, whilst teaching you how to resolve conflict with ease and get what you want and need without using demands. It teaches us to hear the needs of others too. Ground-breaking techniques pioneered by Marshall B. Rosenberg.
It’s very much worth getting hold of a copy of the book first.
MONDAY 19th MAY, 6pm - 8pm
