Course Content Nonviolent Communication is a way of thinking, speaking, and living. It is a powerful set of tools to increase our compassion, understanding, and authenticity to get everyone’s needs met. How do we make sense of this from an anti-racist, anti-oppression (ARAO) point of view, when some people do not understand institutional power and power dynamics? And how can NVC practices address the needs of people of colour? Sessions 1-4: We learn the foundations of NVC through an ARAO lens including: Different types of observations, including systematic observations that help to anchor compassionate inquiry How emotions help us to get clear about what is important and can clarify strategies for growth How requests build trust and partnership, especially when working across differences Sessions 5-8: We learn practical skills that we can use in situations such as: Responding effectively to acts of racism in a way that reduces harm to us as BIPOC Advocating for what we want in ways that are more likely to make a difference Transforming the self-critical voice and undoing colonised thinking Holding ourselves and others without judgment through focusing on the values underneath them Preparing for and navigating difficult conversations Recordings Recordings will be available for participants until May 24, 2021.
