nvc-logoNonviolent Communication Parenting for Beginners

4 Mondays 6:00 – 7:30 pm PST,  Nov 30, Dec 7, 14 & 21  via Zoom

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 new to nvc (whether new to parenting or not). The instructor requests that you provide yourself with a basic understanding of nvc prior to taking the class if nvc it new to you (three easily accessible options are listed below).
Cost: The course is free to all who wish; Michelle Leah Gomez is not charging for her services.

To support NVC Santa Cruz, if you are able, a requested sliding scale donation for the 6 hours of class is $60, $90 or $120.

Prerequisites: Some introduction to nvc is requested (this class will assume a basic understanding of Feelings, Needs, Observation and Requests), such as 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. With learning and support, may the journey be one towards peace.
