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 watch the DVD sets “The Basics of Nonviolent Communication” and, if possible, “Making Life Wonderful.” Also, the Nonviolent Communication Training Course Kitprovides a look at what types of exercises you can expect during the IIT. These materials and others are available from CNVC.

More information about these items can be found in the Bookstore.
