A Look Into Non-Violent Communication & How It Will Transform The World

A Look Into Non-Violent Communication & How It Will Transform The World | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it
The label of non-violent communication seems pretty harsh, especially because it is just a term for our regular old ways of communicating, but once you understand what this is all about it becomes easy to see that how we communicate on a daily basis to our children, friends, family members and most importantly, ourselves, is actually damaging and can cause a whole slough of mental health issues that we may have otherwise not realized. Words are powerful, every word we speak is like putting an intention into the universe.

How to Practice Nonviolent Communication

How to Practice Nonviolent Communication | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

Nonviolent Communication (NVC)[1] includes a simple method for clear, empathic communication, consisting of four areas of focus:

  • Observations
  • Feelings
  • Needs
  • Requests


NVC aims to find a way for all present to get what really matters to them without the use of guilt, humiliation, shame, blame, coercion, or threats. It is useful for resolving conflicts, connecting with others, and living in a way that is conscious, present, and attuned to the genuine, living needs of yourself and others.

Introduction to Non-Violent Communication with Alan Seid 

We had the pleasure of welcoming Alen Seid from Cascadia Workshops who is a Certified Trainer in Nonviolent Communication. In this Meetup, we had an overview and focus on the benefit of using NVC to help communicate with others.

NVC is a communication process developed by Marshall Rosenberg beginning in the 1960s. It focuses on three aspects of communication: self-empathy, empathy, and honest self-expression. People who practice NVC have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepening connection and conflict resolution.

'Science of Empathy' is topic of Quarry Hill program 

'Science of Empathy' is topic of Quarry Hill program  | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it
Nonviolent Communication expert Peggy Smith of Lincolnville gives a presentation titled “Beyond Judgment: Exploring the Science of Empathy,” at Quarry Hill Feb. 15 from 10:30 a.m. to noon. The program will be offered free of charge. The snow date is Wednesday, Feb. 22.

Smith’s interactive presentation will interweave the principles of Nonviolent Communication with recent scientific findings about the ways in which human brains interact. She will invite attendees to experience the “calming gift” of empathy and explore ways to connect with people, even those with controversial or conflicting points of view. She’ll also guide participants in a discussion of what judgmental thinking may teach us about ourselves and how to turn such thoughts into positive, life-serving energy.

To reduce student suspensions, teachers should try being more empathetic

To reduce student suspensions, teachers should try being more empathetic | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

By Emily Underwood

 

One group of math teachers completed a short online exercise emphasizing empathy, which included readings about research that showed how caring relationships with adults contributed to student success. It also included writing prompts in which teachers shared their insights about empathy in the classroom.

 

For example, one teacher wrote: “I feel I need to earn my students’ respect and trust. I know many of them have had poor experiences with past teachers so I need to prove to my students that I am there for them and will not let them fail.” A second group completed a similar exercise. But instead of empathy, they read and wrote about the importance of technology to student development.

 

In contrast, only 4.6% of students whose math teacher had completed the online exercise on empathy were suspended, the team reports today in theProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Residential Empathy Intensive -A Deeper Dive into Empathy, the Breath of Compassion

Residential Empathy Intensive -A Deeper Dive into Empathy, the Breath of Compassion | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it


This training is intended to support participants in having a deeper integration of empathy. In a supportive, community environment, participants experience challenge, guidance and support in the practice of empathy and seeing our world empathically.

 

Throughout our time together we will learn to increase our capacity for being present, learn to focus our awareness, and develop the ability to work with our own capabilities and humanity, in real-time situations.

Feelings and needs are the focus of empathy, so our relationship to them directly influences the quality and depth of our empathy. At this intensive, through practice and exercise, we will broaden and enrich our understanding and experience of these “life energies” thereby deepening our practice of empathy. Throughout the retreat, we will build on that work with well-defined empathy processes to bring a fruitful, sustainable practice of empathy into your life.

The Art Of Non-Violent Communication For Successful Dating

The Art Of Non-Violent Communication For Successful Dating | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it
Empathy
A big ingredient in non-violent communication is empathy. Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of your partner.

Self-soothing is like having empathy for yourself. Next time your partner is frustrated or upset, try practising having empathy for them. See if you can understand where they are coming from.

Can you see why they would feel that way? Can you keep your heart open and feeling compassionate towards them because you understand their situation? Then you are experiencing empathy.

Parenting from this paradigm, Heath acknowledges, is not without its challenges. “I want to put it out there to other parents who may be utilizing NVC to not be discouraged, because it’s long-term parenting.

 

In the moment, it won’t work if working means getting somebody else to do what you want them to do. It’s not behavior modification; it’s not controlling your child’s behavior.

 

But if your goal is to teach them about your values — that’s the empathy.”
