Practice diffusing conflict using Nonviolent Communication (NVC)

Hello! I’m facilitating a 5-week Nonviolent Communication (NVC) practice group at the St. Petersburg College/Gibbs Campus Library starting Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2019, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

This practice group is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a needs-based communication model (NVC) that can turn stressful conversations into mindful resolutions.

As a family mediator and founder of Relationship Conflict Resolution, I’m offering this 5-week class for those interested in enhancing their ability to communicate from the heart. I’ve been using NVC in my personal and professional life for nearly 20 years. The compassionate communication model is magical in its ability to restore and deepen relationships, and resolve conflicts from a calmer, more mindful space.

We will meet at the St. Petersburg College Library on Tuesdays, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., beginning Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2019. The 5-week class runs through Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2019, with no group on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019. The college library is located at 6700 8th Ave., N., St. Petersburg, FL, 33710.

No prerequisites required.

Everyone is welcome. All classes at the library are free. We will meet in conference room LI-101, first door on the left after entering the library.

In this practice group, we will distinguish:

* empathy from non-empathetic forms of response

* self-empathy from acting out, repressing or stewing

* non-judgmental forms of expressing and receiving gratitude from judgmental forms

I will also demonstrate how to integrate other models with NVC, specifically the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model.

At the end of each class, I’ll mediate a real-life conflict using NVC. You’re welcome to bring a conflict of your own for the demonstration.

The first person who brings a friend will receive a Feelings and Needs card deck, and a private session on how to use the cards.

If you feel motivated, please join us as we have some fun supporting each other in learning a language that inspires compassion and collaboration!
