I find it useful to use Nonviolent Communication as a doorway to Focusing, especially in El Salvador, where people are not used to the idea of self empathy.

How Non-Violent Communication Can Change Your Life - InfoBarrel | focusing_gr | Scoop.it

Non-violent communication (NVC) is about being empathic, not only with others but with yourself. It can radically change how you think about yourself (you get to know why you feel a certain way) and how you feel when people say something to you.
 .....

 

You don't have to be nice to practice non-violent communication. You just need the courage to express your feelings and needs and a desire to solve a problem.

Remembering My Aliveness: A Story of Transformation

Remembering My Aliveness: A Story of Transformation | focusing_gr | Scoop.it
I had a call tonight with my new dear friend Jayne from Scotland, a fellow Nonviolent Communication (NVC) comrade. The conversation started out with low energy. We shared our struggles and frustrations about coming back from the empathic paradise we recently experienced at the NVC retreat we had attended. About 1 hour into the conversation, the energy was slowly picking up and we decided to took a break for tea in our respective countries. We came back in 5 minutes and both started to notice a significant shift in the energy. There was something stirring.

The Meaning of “Nonviolent Communication”

As is perhaps expressed best in the work of Derrick Jensen, there are many ways in which violent forms of communication play a role in our society. Obviously, physical force is the most visible example. And Nonviolent Communication stems from and relates deeply to an understanding of the factors that perpetuate this most concrete form of violence. ...

Guest Blog: Family mediation- the power of the “third side” | | Awake Parent Perspectives | focusing_gr | Scoop.it
... Here are some ways to intervene that do meet my needs for connection and respect: 1 – Say what you’re hearing said, and ask the other party to reflect it back. “I just heard Malika say she didn’t want to play that game any more—could you tell me what you heard her say?” Then give the other side equal time, and help the first person hear them, too. 2 – Say what you’re seeing or hearing, how you feel, what you need, and what you’d like. “When I hear the sound of your voices right now, I feel anxious. I need peace. Would you be willing to play in the other room, or at least keep your voices down if you want to stay in here? (In fairness, this is a lot harder than it sounds.) 3 – Guess at what each person is feeling. “Chong, it looks like you’re feeling sad. Are you wanting to play with Paulina and Sandip?” “Paulina, were you enjoying what you were doing, and having a hard time figuring out how to include Chong?” 4 – Ask for cooperation in a peaceful solution. “Joseph, would you be willing to let Sasha know when you’re done with the Wii? Sasha, would you like to help me with making the cookies until then?” ...

... Let’s try the “Assume a positive intention” technique: You see your child doing something that makes your heart race and your mind jump to all sorts of troubling conclusions.  You decide to implement assuming a positive intention behind all actions.  First you breathe, then you think, “What could the positive intention behind this action be?,” then you come up with some idea, you check in with your child, “Sweetie, were you really wanting to see what why I won’t let you have food near the computer?  Are you needing some more information and understanding about that?  Were you enjoying the feeling of the peanut butter on your hands?” ...

The Implicit & Experiential Rantings of a Person: My Top Ten Recommended Areas of Change for the NVC Network | focusing_gr | Scoop.it
focusing_gr's insight:

The NVC (which is short for Nonviolent Communication) world seems to be in an interesting position right now. The founder/creator Marshall Rosenberg recently passed away and the international organization that owns the trademark and coordinates many things related to it, the CNVC (short for Center for Nonviolent Communication), is currently in the midst of a lot of different re-evaluation and restructuring. The time is ripe for changes in the NVC world.

Your Partner’s Reactivity isn’t About You - Weekly Newsletter on NVC and Communication From the Heart

Your Partner’s Reactivity isn’t About You - Weekly Newsletter on NVC and Communication From the Heart | focusing_gr | Scoop.it

The definition of reactivity in the context of relationship is that it is an immediate and conditioned behavior. This means it is based on past events. When you are reacting you are perceiving something in the present and unconsciously assigning meaning based on a past event or events. For deeply conditioned reactive patterns you often can’t remember the past experiences in which they were born....

The thing I value most about intimate partnership is the opportunity it provides for healing and transformation. Most reactivity comes from a wound around belonging, intimacy, autonomy, and/or security. An intimate partnership inevitably touches these wounds and reactivity is the symptom. Two partners who are dedicated to transformation and have adequate resources can support each other in dissolving these reactive patterns....

What to do when someone comes to you with a problem?

If you’re like me, one of your first impulses might be to help them fix the problem by giving advice or sympathy. I’ve found, however, in the vast majority of cases the best response is to resist that immediate urge and respond with empathy.

Everyone has challenges from time to time and it’s quite natural to reach out to those closest to us for help. Who hasn’t known a family member, friend or colleague start talking about a difficult situation they face? Sometimes they complain or vent and at other times make a clear request for help....

What’s My Intention? A Simple Nonviolent Communication Exercise

... To help you check in to your intention, run through the exercise below. Bring to mind something you did or did not do, something you said or did not say. If you have difficulty doing this, try recalling something specific you did that involves: The use of force Offering someone “negative feedback” or “constructive criticism” Agreeing to do something someone asks of you Saying no to someone “Being good,” “being nice” Telling a joke, “being funny,” saying something humorous Describe on paper what you did or said, and state the intention behind it. Now, reflect on whether there were deeper layers of intention beneath the one just named. If so, write down whatever you discover. When you became aware of an intention, did you want to change your intention? Did you want to change your action? Write down any thoughts or feelings that come to mind as you ask yourself these questions. ...
