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.

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.

Sliding scale $25-75.
