“Where did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children [and adults] do better, first we have to make them feel worse?” Jane Nelson
This two day course:
- Introduces you to the process of Nonviolent Communication [NVC] for use in expressing yourself to your children and others, listening to your children and others and most importantly listening with compassion to yourself
- Gives you the tools and practice required to start using NVC in your daily life
- Offers a safe and an empathic space for those engaged in the vital work of raising children
Would you like to:
• Deepen the quality of connection with your children and your family without
giving up on your needs?
• Stay connected to what you hold dear particularly during times of conflict?
• Explore ways of becoming more present and available for yourself, your children and your family?
• Learn to recognise when you are beating yourself up for not being a ‘good
parent’, and find ways to reconnect to yourself with compassion?
• Learn how to take and value a “Time In”?
• Add more fun, joy and play to your parenting journey?
The approaches we explore will support you in developing compassionate
communication. This approach fosters co-operation where everyone’s needs are
held with care and always with an intention to enable children and their
parents to reach their full potential.
