Facilitated NVC Practice Group

Facilitated by Ruud Baanders

Participating in this facilitated practice group is a great way to deepen your Nonviolent Communication (NVC) skills in a supportive group of NVC experienced peers.  Practicing with the support of an NVC trainer guarantees continuity, safety, inspiration and satisfaction.  We come together in an NVC consciousness whilst practicing NVC skills and processes using a variety of exercises. Our regular meetings give you the opportunity to focus on situations and themes of your choice whilst deepening your NVC skills. We are fully and empathically present with the joy and pain that you might bring into the group, as we come together in an atmosphere of compassion and honesty. 

Typical structure of the meeting

  • Check-in (feelings and needs alive in you)
  • NVC skill development (working on one skill/key distinction/process)
  • Identifying personal situations alive in participants that they would like to practice 
  • Practicing on a personal situation or an agreed general topic
  • Check-out (feelings and needs alive, and agreeing topic for next meeting)

In working on specific themes and NVC skills we can use books, cd's, dvd's, puppets, and other tools.
We make use of the NVC Dance Floors, role plays, mediation process, and other methods.
Each meeting will be an opportunity to practice your NVC skills in all the group interactions.
