Transforming Anger through Nonviolent Communication
The Transforming Anger through Nonviolent Communication class is based on the book “Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life” by Marshall B. Rosenberg and available at the website www.CNVC.org.
This is a twelve-session program in communication and self-awareness that fosters the development of skills for making mindful choices which lead to new, life-serving behaviors. The class explores strategies for effectively dealing with intense emotions, especially anger, and lays the groundwork for developing a needs-based consciousness essential in transforming habits of criticism and blame into self-responsibility and compassionate communication. The program focuses on exploring deeply held core beliefs, discovering the true motivations behind our actions and words, and developing skills for honest self-expression that are more likely to lead to connection and understanding rather than conflict or violence.
New volunteers are welcome and will be trained through participation in the class.
