Ron first trained in NVC in 2001 with Dr. Marshall Rosenberg in Puerto Rico and California. He is a certified trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication and has been providing training in Aotearoa since his return from overseas in 2003.
In 2010 Ron took time off from providing NVC workshops to complete a PhD related to Māori spirituality and wellbeing through Massey University, which was conferred in 2016. He has a particular interest in supporting the revitalisation of the Māori language through the development of emotional literacy in Te Reo Māori.
Ron has provided workshops for various groups and organisations across the country, including Waikato youth mentoring programmes, Lifeline counsellors, problem gambling services, domestic violence workers, Group Special Education Services for the Ministry of Education, and business managers and employees.
He has found NVC to be an invaluable aid in helping people heal conflict, whether it be in business, politics, race relations, education, or personal relationships. Ron is available for group and personal training and support.
