Training Intro

Trainings and workshops offer an opportunity to learn and practice the skills and consciousness of NVC and most people find participating in workshops helpful in developing fluency in the process. Workshops are typically highly interactive and vary in length from brief introductions to multi day intensives and ongoing classes, and some trainers offer on-line training opportunities as well as in person training. Fees also vary considerably. Some workshops are offered on a donation basis with no one turned away for lack of funds. Scholarships or work exchange may be available. Please contact the particular trainer to explore possibilities.

Creating an account (from the top right corner link) will enable you to add your Trainings here, as well as list you on the Trainers page.

Amiry
CNVC Certified Trainer

I have been practicing and sharing Nonviolent Communication (NVC) since 2003 as part of my passion for building stronger relationships, (focusing on, though not limited to, Couples and Parenting,) while developing more integrated and sustainable communities. Teaching NVC has been central to my life since 2010 and I have been working with the Kathleen Macferren, Karl Staeyert, and the rest of the core team on the Trainer Community Certification Path (TCCP). I completed my NVC Trainer Certification with CNVC in 2016.

As a Rose City NVC Teacher Training Program (TTP) participant, I have co-taught NVC classes with Fred Sly, and have facilitated Rose City NVC's Foundations and Integrations Classes and Tuesday night NVC Practice Group for the last 4 plus years. I have taught NVC at Oregon State Penitentiary, Columbia River Correctional Institution, the Reentry Transition Center in Portland, and currently teach at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (for Women). Simultaneously, I have participated in the Trainer Community Certification Path (TCCP) intensives since 2011, and have co-taught NVC classes with LaShelle Lowe-Charde. I also currently offer Individual and Couples Coaching to my greater Portland community.

My personal NVC journey includes many other forms of spiritual work with an emphasis on meditative and body awareness practices. I integrate practices which allow me other avenues to touch the essence of our NVC work. While I believe the words and the form on NVC can help my participants touch into a place of greater compassion and understanding, I also believe that holding a space of compassion and understanding in myself creates ease in adopting the new words (silently and out loud) for my participants. My spiritual outlook related to NVC is to align my daily will in progress towards unconditional love, acceptance, non-judgement, and spaciousness. My vision for an NVC world is that one day most adults will hold this type of unconditional and loving space most of the time supporting each other in the hard times and the development of those still growing so we can be present to more of each moment on this earth.

CNVC Certified Trainer

I once asked myself the question, “Is there a single key that could make a difference in addressing all the world’s problems?” It seemed to me that if we could find ways to more reliably partner to work together, instead of battling or working at cross-purposes, then this could make all the difference. To me, NVC offers some critical pieces of the puzzle, concerning how we can be together in more satisfying ways. NVC powerfully contributes to making new things possible intra-personally (in how we relate to ourselves), interpersonally (between people), and potentially on larger scales (systemically, institutionally and politically). I am interesting in supporting the application of NVC at all these levels. I’m also interested in integrating NVC with additional knowledge, about individual thriving (especially in the face of trauma) and organizational functioning (including consciousness about use of power).

I am a CNVC Certified Trainer, and have led workshops around the world. In addition to leading workshops, I offer private sessions, coaching and mediation for individuals and couples—for learning, healing, and creating inner and outer peace. For groups and institutions, I offer facilitation and coaching to support increased effectiveness and alignment with aspirational values.

I co-founded Family Heart Camp, a collection of NVC family camps held each year around the US. I served on the Board of Directors of the Center for Nonviolent Communication. I have a Ph.D. in Applied Physics.

M.A.
CNVC Certified Trainer

I envision a world in which the needs of all people are honored, in which the abundant resources of our planet are both respected and also flow freely so as to reliably meet those needs, and in which people resolve their conflicts peacefully. I strive to live in harmony with the principles of NVC and to offer NVC training to the public and to those organizations and institutions that resonate with those principles. I also provide counseling and consulting services to individuals and groups, and help to contribute to the spread of NVC by serving as a member of the board of directors of the Oregon Network for Compassionate Communication. I have a special affinity with educators, having been a professor of philosophy for 35 years; with parents and mental health professionals, having been a marriage and family therapist for the same length of time--and a co-parent of two for over 25 years; and with those who are responsible for organizational leadership, having served as executive director of the Center for Nonviolent Communication for nearly 8 years. I am also especially eager to contribute to the work of social activists.
