Away from Binaries: Making NonViolent Communication More Effective and Inclusive

Date: 
Saturday, May 10, 2014 - 12:00pm - 4:00pm
Location : 
Maryland

Event Location: Maitri House in Takoma Park, MD (rsvp for address to ryan@notjustskin.org)

Event Description: In this workshop, you'll reframe nonviolent communication (NVC) by replacing binary distinctions with broader continua or landscapes. Colleagues have found this reframing useful for engaging with the nuances and complexity of human experience in workshops, counseling, and mediation.

And, rather than making understanding NVC more complicated, this change may actually make it easier to understand and make use of, especially for social change and anti-oppression work.

In Memory of John Judge

 John Patrick Judge passed at the age of 66, just as he had lived – with courage in the midst of pain. An internationally acclaimed researcher, writer and speaker, as well as a lifelong anti-militarist anti-racist activist, and community organizer, Judge died on April 15 due to complications from a stroke suffered in early March.
