NVC Parenting for Beginners!

Saturdays, starting 15 May, 10:30 am PDT / 5:30 pm UTC

Without Coercion, Force, Bribery or Even Praise

$0 – 160  Ten “Scholarship” Spaces Now Available. If you have financial need, I have opened up 10 spaces for free. Simply click on the “scholarship – free” option when you register.


Whether or not you are new-to-parenting (grandparenting, step-parenting, teachers or other care-takers of children) this class supports your journey towards more peaceful parenting through nonviolent communication.

Do you long for more peaceful communication with your children? Do you seek collaboration over coercion and wonder what that means in practice? Do you long for a nonviolent world and wonder how that might begin at home?

Whether it is a two year old kicking on the floor, a 5 year old grabbing a toy from another child, a teenager slamming the door shut or a parent considering doing each of the above – how might one approach these scenarios from a nonviolent communication perspective?

This class is for parents, caregivers and the nvc-curious, new to compassionate communication parenting (whether new to parenting or not). The instructor requests that you have a basic understanding of nvc prior to taking the class (three easily accessible options below).

1) Santa Cruz nvc’s one Sunday evening class: https://nvcsantacruz.org/introductory-session-in-nvc/

2) Marshall Rosenberg’s Seminal Book — Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life

3) 3 hour Basics workshop: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7TONauJGfc

This course is offered on a sliding scale of $80/$120/$160 for the 8 hours of class time (this price is per household). Scholarships are available on the Honor System — that is — for those with financial need — when registering — you are invited to select the “free” ticket option.

Some introduction to nvc is requested; this class will assume a basic understanding of Feelings, Needs, Observation and Requests.

Recommended Nonviolent Communication Prerequisites (any or all of the following):

1) Santa Cruz nvc’s one Sunday evening class https://nvcsantacruz.org/introductory-session-in-nvc/
2) Marshall Rosenberg’s Seminal Book — Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life

This class will discuss concepts and use exercises from Inbal Kashtan’s Parenting From Your Heart to discuss basic concepts of nvc parenting. The bulk of class time will be exercises — applying these concepts to each parent’s real life examples and discussing the issues that arise.

~ Parenting is a journey. May your journey be one towards peace.
