This 2-day NVC Foundation Training will equip you with the essential theory and skills to put NVC into practice in your daily life, at work, with your family or in society. The emphasis on the training is on learning through practice, with sufficient theoretical input to clarify the basic elements of NVC. The training is facilitated by Daren De Witt, a certified trainer with the Centre for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) since 2003. Daren has trained extensively with Marshall Rosenberg, the creator of NVC. You will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the training.

About NVC

Nonviolent Communication is a powerful communication tool that can help you to transform your relationships with other people, and even with yourself! NVC is particularly useful when people are communicating in challenging ways – with aggression or noncompliance. It is also a powerful empathy tool – it will help you to support people who are in pain or confusion, to help them understand themselves more and find inner calm and peace. And it is also a powerful tool for self-empathy – it will help you to understand yourself better and make more effective choices in your own life and relationships.

Programme Outline

Over the course of the two day foundation training you will gradually deepen your understanding and practice of NVC.

Day one:

The focus is on developing your clarity regarding the basic elements of NVC. We will explore the themes of: the intention of NVC; the 4 main ingredients of NVC; and the four ways of hearing messages. You will practice expressing all these elements by means of shorter, simpler exercises.

Day two:

You will engage with longer and more challenging exercises, which will give you an experience of the depth and power of NVC. You will practice using NVC to: clarify your inner experience; empathise with another person; and dialogue with someone whom you find challenging (in a role play context).
Daren and his assistants will provide coaching support throughout the training.
