About self empathy

We will use the 4 steps of empathy practice, which you can recap here.

About Empathic Listening

This is the skill of holding space for someone when they are trying to process and understand something that has happened. It’s the skill of reflecting back and guessing feelings and needs in supportive ways. It’s also a helpful skill for meetings that are getting derailed or stuck.

Before you come, you can watch this short video about Reflecting back with Effectiveness and Ease

About Role Play

Role Play is a practice to give you an embodied experience of NVC inspired dialogue. Before you come to the Role Play session, you can review your input from your Foundation training and read or listen to this short post about the purpose and practice of roleplay
