This training is for those who want to deepen their abilities to understand others and help them create the worlds they want to live in! NVC can also be used as a significant tool for burnout prevention and staff development.
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) was developed by Marshall Rosenberg. It is an approach to communicating that is designed to help people connect more compassionately with others. Nonviolent Communication, sometimes referred to as compassionate communication, can transform interactions, enabling the therapist and client to become more aware of communicating feelings, needs, and intentions. NVC is a form of communication that can promote greater self-awareness and growth, fostering deeper relationships and allowing for effective conflict and dispute resolution. The purpose of this training is to provide the participants an opportunity to enhance their empathy skills via the process of Non-Violent Communication. This skill set will increase their effectiveness in individual counseling, group counseling, motivational interviewing and family counseling. Particular emphasis will be on working with those individuals receiving substance abuse and mental health treatment.

- Identify the communication practices that interfere with empathetic interactions,
- Engage in self-assessment of communication practices
- Learn how to assess for unmet needs and develop communication for delivering observations,
