Nonviolent Communication (NVC) Exploration:
Dive into Experiential Learning




Type: Professional Development (NO CEUs)

Location: Live Webinar

Instructor: Andy Dillon, CNVC, LMSW



Drawing primarily from the theory and practice of NVC (Nonviolent Communication), this workshop invites mental health professionals to develop awareness and build skills that increase the quality of connection to self and others. Disconnection and conflict are inherently part of our interactions in the world and NVC can transform our ability to repair, reconnect, and build stronger relationships. This set of skills can be useful in our work supporting our client's mental health, in intimate and family relationships, in schools, businesses, and as part of conflict resolution processes.




Inspired by the transformative principles of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) developed by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, this workshop is designed to empower mental health professionals with practical skills and heightened awareness to enrich their connections with both themselves and others. In a world where disconnection and conflict often prevail, NVC offers a powerful framework for repairing rifts, fostering reconnection, and nurturing stronger relationships.

Throughout this workshop, participants will delve into the four fundamental components of NVC: Observations, Feelings, Needs, and Requests. Through experiential learning, including ample opportunities for practice in dyads and small groups, attendees will deepen their understanding and proficiency in applying NVC principles.

This workshop isn't just about theoretical concepts; it's about equipping mental health professionals with tangible tools that can be immediately applied in their practice. Whether supporting clients' mental health journeys, navigating intimate and family relationships, fostering healthy environments in schools and businesses, or facilitating conflict resolution processes, the skills learned in this workshop are invaluable assets.

Participants will emerge from the workshop with a solid introduction to the theory and practice of NVC, ready to begin to integrate these transformative techniques into their professional and personal lives.
