Online – Communicate 4 Connection – Thursdays 10am from 23 April
23 April, 2020 @ 10:00 pm - 24 April, 2020 @ 12:00 am
In this time of isolation, are you noticing how much your relationships matter?
What if you could use this time to enrich your ability to connect?
Online Course – Communicate 4 Connection – Valerie & Jim
On this online course we’ll practise caring for ourselves and others as we express honestly and listen with empathy using the basics of Nonviolent Communication.
Course runs from 10am till noon on Thursday mornings beginning Thursday 23 April and ending on Thursday 4 June.
Topics we intend to cover will include
- Expressing honestly,
- Listening with empathy
- Choices for hearing “hard to hear messages”
- Giving and receiving feedback including acknowledgements/gratitude
We’ll cover 4 key questions/ingredients and important differentiations around them and provide plenty of time to practice in “breakout rooms”
What happened . . . . .observations vs observations mixed with evaluations
What’s going on in me . . . .feelings vs feelings mixed with thoughts/stories/blame
What’s important . . . .needs or values vs strategies
What do I want to happen next . . . requests vs demands
These 4 components can be applied to expressing, listening, or to self-empathy.
Course costs are $140 – $280. We invite you to consider your personal circumstances and contribute as generously as you are comfortable.
