Conflict Resolution with Nonviolent Communication

September 9th | 12:00-2:00pm Eastern

Conflict Resolution with Nonviolent Communication

Conflict is inevitable, but it can serve as a powerful catalyst for mutual goodwill, empathy and self-owning within a community.

In this 2-hour interactive workshop, we’ll be covering how Nonviolent Communication can help you and your community move through it, to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes.

Alan Rafael Seid brings a lively and engaging style to his trainings, combining humor, exercises for practice, a deep understanding of the theory behind the process, and a keen sensitivity to individual and group needs. This workshop will cover a re-cap of Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s process called Nonviolent Communication, or NVC, which emerged out of a sense of alignment with Gandhi’s social movement of Nonviolence. We will then look at how NVC is used to support conflict toward mutually beneficial outcomes.

Key outcomes of this workshop:

  • Become acquainted with a process for enriching personal and professional relationships
  • Understand the role of an NVC-informed mediator or facilitator, and the basic structure for getting through tough conversations
  • Gain insights into why past mediation attempts have failed
  • Learn the most overlooked insight to preventing and resolving conflicts
