Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a way of communicating that strengthens our ability to stay in touch with our humanity and get our needs met, even under difficult circumstances. Instead of habitual responses, our words become conscious responses based on a clear awareness of what we are observing, feeling, and wanting. We are led to express ourselves with honesty and clarity, while paying respectful and empathic attention to others.

If parenting can be like having your heart walking around outside of your body, this series aims to grow our honesty and empathy so we meet both our kids' needs and our own. Using exercises and roleplays, we'll unwrap the habits that get in our way of being the parents we want to be.

Led by NVC Santa Cruz trainer and parent Kristin Masters
6 week series - Thursdays, September 4 - October 9, 7-9pm  Online registration available.

Also, we have other workshops listed in our Events Calendar.
