About the Event
This highly interactive course will combine the evidence based practices of interpersonal neurobiology such as Non Violent Communication (NVC) and Motivational Interviewing to teach participants respectful, collaborative communication strategies. Using the framework of Emotional Intelligence, this systematic approach teaches the communicator how to utilize empathetic listening and acknowledge needs which lead to the ability to make requests to modify behavior. The participant will learn how to listen effectively, dispel labels, and define what the window of somatic tolerance is. The participant will examine how their beliefs may differ from the others, where stumbling blocks may be and create a plan for how to begin the conversation. This process allows each person to experience being heard and respected by identifying core individual needs of themselves and others. We will also explore the art of the apology.
This workshop is free, for folx who have experienced some form of interpersonal or family trauma or harm at any point in their lives.
