Skills to Connect, even when the Differences are Challenging
The last several years have been hard on many of our relationships. Divisiveness has gone beyond politics and seeped into our closest bonds.
How do we relate to the friend or family member who voted for "the other side", or who doesn't share the same social justice passions? How do we connect with the neighbor who sees safety around covid-19 differently from us?
Is it possible to find common ground and rebuild connections that have suffered?
Kathy Simon invites you to join her on an interactive learning experience to help you strengthen your relationships and improve those that are challenging. Individuals, couples, parents, journalists, teachers, therapists, and other helping professionals will gain lots of value from this course.
You can expect to practice:
We will practice Nonviolent Communication through demonstrations, role-playing, and exercises designed to help you find your balance when you disagree and to help you enter each new situation with a sense of curiosity and possibility. You will also be able to work on examples from your own life in a safe environment.
Whether you are new to NVC or have been practicing for years, the skills we practice here will help you navigate these
challenging times with more clarity, power, ease, and warmth.
