Participants are encouraged to attend all 3 workshops, however, there is no requirement to do so.

This three-part workshop familiarizes participants with the theory and practice of non-violent communication— as an essential component of more restorative approaches to addressing harm and as a way of life. It offers a general introduction to the theory, history, and practice of non-violent communication through lecture, discussion, and opportunities to practice key skills. Workshop exercises and activities encourage participants to apply non-violent communication principles and strategies to their own personal life and professional practice.

This session offers a general introduction to the history, theory, and practice of non-violent communication, and concludes with a short introductory exercise.
