Highly recommend. It was really clear and easy to understand. Simple and clear with some light-hearted banter in there also. Heaps of practical examples that can be applied to your day-to-day life. You will be better off for taking this course. Money well spent!
I was inspired by this topic after attending an NVC (Non-Violent Communication) couples weekend. I learned how quickly you can learn to connect in a meaningful way with your fellow humans, but also how subtly our language includes violence and judgement.
In this course, you will learn about the empathy cards resource as well as the subtleties that make Nonviolent Communication such a powerful way of connecting. This has been a profound, yet simple, way to improve emotional intelligence.
I am a counsellor, husband, and father and this course is absolutely relevant to all these aspects of my life.
After taking this course you will have the skills to better connect with yourself, and also the self-awareness to be able to express yourself without muddying your message with the violence and judgment that are such a natural part of our language.
You will learn how to use the 'feeling and needs' empathy cards and how they fit into the Nonviolent Communication Dance Floor.
You will also Integrate the NVC philosophy with your personal style of helping by watching applied lectures and demonstrations.
Course Outline: Section 1: The Cards and Empathy
Section 2: The Dance Floor
Section 3: Applications
Section 4: Gratitude
I actually think that the best way to learn anything is experience - and for this topic - I think that's especially true. So, take the time to practice the skills being taught, and even better, get along to a local NVC practice group or course and experience the magic for yourself.
You will get a copy of the NVC Dance floor to download and print.
You will get a copy of common faux feelings and/or feelings that blame.
Who this course is for:
- Somebody who owns a set of feelings and needs cards
- Somebody who wants to better understand non violent communication
- Social Workers
- Human Resource Managers
- Anyone wanting the world to be a less violence place
Hi, I’m Joel. I injured my back two years ago while surfing, and haven’t been able to work the same since. I wondered if anyone else out there ever needed greater flexibility like me. I wondered if I could take the lessons I’ve learned through counselling over the years and get them into the hands of busy people when they want, where they want, would it be useful?
The answer = Udemy.
I remembered this platform and got to work creating online workshops for Udemy when my body let me. And now that they’re done, you can access my online courses whenever and wherever you want, for as long as you want.
Drawing on over 2000 hrs of face to face counselling I have put together some practical and in-depth workshops and made them available to the public on Udemy.
NEW skills. NEW techniques. NEW insight. If you don’t learn something new and relevant, get your money back. That’s my UDEMY promise.
Give it a go!
