Nonviolent Communication Part 1: Using NVC in Mediation and in Life/MWI

  • 10 Sep 2019

Nonviolent Communication (NVC), developed by Marshall Rosenberg and practiced worldwide, is a communication style that examines the unmet needs behind what we say or do. The process transforms relationships with others and with one’s self. Sometimes referred to as “compassionate communication,” NVC fosters respect, attentiveness and empathy, and engenders a mutual desire to give from the heart. The form is simple, yet powerfully transformative, and uses careful observations to eliminate judgments, providing an effective language of neutrality for mediating a wide range of disputes. Further, using NVC in your mediation practice can help move the parties’ focus from positions to interests. Join us to learn more about NVC during a discussion led by mediator, trainer and conflict coach Scott Loring.

This workshop is the first in a two part series. In order to attend the June 25 Roundtable, “Nonviolent Communication Part 2,” participants should have completed either this or one of Scott’s previous “Nonviolent Communication Part 1” workshops. 

MWI Roundtable events are free for all active MWI mediators. Those who are not actively mediating with the MWI Court Panel are welcome to attend up to one Roundtable per year for free. RSVP is required for all attendees and can be completed by registering online. For more information on this and other upcoming MWI Roundtables, click here.
