The Self-Empathy Telecourse has given me concrete tools and support for experiencing the painful results of internalized judgments with more clarity and openness. It opened a doorway for liberation from negative self-criticism and has given me more hope. I really appreciate the sensitivity and perceptiveness with which Raj and Mary guided us toward the beautiful needs waiting underneath it all. Understanding this process inside myself, I am ready to offer empathy to others with more skill and conviction. I am very grateful for the opportunity to participate in this course.

Telecourses (Telephone Courses)

Telecourses are a type of distance learning.  In this venue, students and trainers attend the class over the phone at the same time, but in different places. Through the use of telephone technology, such as regular phones, cell phones, Skype-out, or other VOIP(voice over IP) phone services, telecourses allow students to work Nonviolent Communication classes into their busy home and/or work schedules. You may take telecourses from your home or office at times that are convenient for you.

Many NVC Academy telecourses are augmented by an online classroom that let you discuss course topics with other students, share pictures and more. This use of technology provides an easy way to stay connected with fellow classmates between class sessions and maximize learning.

What if I’m too busy to take a telecourse? 

Telecourses are easily accessible – you call from any phone, anywhere.  So, say you have a busy life and you don’t have time to travel.  You can take your telecourse from your home or office. 

Or, say that you have a busy life and you travel a lot.  Well, you can attend all your telecourse sessions no matter where you are at the moment.  Albuquerque, New Mexico; Paris, France; Venice, Italy; Timbuktu, Mali…it just doesn’t matter. No matter where you are, if you have a phone or computer with an Internet connection, you may attend your telecourse.

Isn’t it hard to have quality connections with people over the phone? 

It is sometimes more challenging for people to stay connected to the trainer and other participants when they can’t see each other. However, our instructors have been specially trained to deal with this very issue. They have methods for keeping people connected, keeping the course interesting, and for providing compelling learning opportunities.

Like what?  Like giving participants a lot of opportunities to give feedback or to say what is on their mind, exercises that participants can do during class to deepen their learning, “buddy” systems that connect students with each other between class sessions, and other exercises and techniques to keep the course fun and interesting.

If it’s a phone call, where are the other people calling from?  

This is the exciting part of telecourses!  People join telecourses from many countries in the world.  The NVC Academy has subscribers from over 20 countries, so you could be in a telecourse with someone from Estonia, Canada, South Africa, Hungary, Denmark, France or even the North Pole!  How many opportunities do you get in a day to hobnob with people from so many different countries?

Are telecourses in English? 

Yes.  They’re in English.

Okay, I’m intrigued, but how do I actually call in to a telecourse? 

Within 24 hours from the time you register for a telecourse, you will receive an email from us with a phone number (several actually – remember you get to choose what country you call from) and a conference access code that allows you to enter your class.  That’s all there is to it.  Getting into your telecourse is a snap—Just dial and count to ten!
