Nonviolent Communication International Intensive Training

Details and Registration Information for IITs

An IIT is a 9-day, Nonviolent Communication, "immersion experience" residential workshop typically including 40 to 70 participants with 3 to 5 CNVC Certified Trainers. All the participants and trainers live together in community during the training. You learn, eat, play and live with people who want to connect compassionately with others for nine days. An IIT training offers an opportunity to live Nonviolent Communication with a community over an extended period of time with the intention to develop Nonviolent Communication skills and consciousness. For frequently asked question visit our IIT FAQ page.

IITs have been held all over the world: Sri Lanka, Canada, Sweden, France, Switzerland, Colombia, Brazil, the United States of America, Hungary, and Argentina, to name some countries.

Preparation for an IIT

Before attending an IIT, we recommend you have at least a basic introduction to NVC and have read Marshall’s book, Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life. If it is difficult for you to find access to NVC training, in addition to reading the book, we suggest you listen to the Nonviolent Communication Training Course Kit. These materials and others are available from CNVC Bookstore.

CNVC Welcomes Donations to our IIT Scholarship Fund.


Please note the change in language regarding IIT's and Certification. In an effort to support clarity and easy access to information, here is the updated language.

We strongly recommend candidates to attend an IIT before becoming certified, but we are no longer in integrity with having a "requirement" in the CPP. So we have come up with the following requests if a candidate does not attend an IIT before becoming certified: 

  • Multi-day, in-depth, residential training 
  • International NVC experience 
  • Areas fully experienced: NVC community (ongoing peer support), spirituality, and social change 
  • Significant NVC experience with multiple CNVC certified trainers and mentors 
  • Established a connection to CNVC, have a clear priority to support CNVC's mission, willing and able to renew annual certification 

If a candidate didn't participate in an IIT before certification, she or he pays for the first IIT as a certified trainer.
