Short description
"This online NVC course is perfect. I highly recommend Daren’s course, he perfectly balances NVC theory and practice and is flexible and attentive to the group’s needs. Our group was smaller than you might find in an “in person” setting which added to the intimacy and trust of the experience. I value this experience very highly, the lessons learned are lasting and a great introduction to the practice of NVC." Maria Sbiti, participant on Daren's April 2020 online NVC foundation training

Description

NVC Foundation Training Overview

This Nonviolent Communication Online Foundation Training will equip you with the essential theory and skills to put NVC into practice in your daily life, at work, with your family or in society.  The emphasis on the training is on learning through practice, with sufficient theoretical input to clarify the basic elements of NVC.  The training is facilitated by Daren De Witt, a certified trainer with the Centre for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) since 2003.  Daren has trained extensively with Marshall Rosenberg, the creator of NVC, and was part of the team that supported him on his visits to the UK between 2001-6.  You will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the training.

About NVC

Nonviolent Communication is a powerful communication tool that can help you to transform your relationships with other people, and even with yourself!

NVC is particularly useful when people are communicating in challenging ways – with aggression or noncompliance.  It is also a powerful empathy tool – it will help you to support people who are in pain or confusion, to help them understand themselves more and find inner calm and peace.  And it is also a powerful tool for self-empathy – it will help you to understand yourself better and make more effective choices in your own life and relationships.

Programme Outline

The training will take place over four mornings on Saturdays and Sundays spanning two weekends.  Over the course of this Nonviolent Communication online foundation training you will gradually deepen your understanding and practice of NVC.  The practice exercises evolve from simpler to more challenging as the training progresses.

Session one, Sat 23rd May 9.30am-1.30pm

(includes 3.5 hours training time and 30 minutes total break time)
- Introductions
- The intention of NVC
- Three key steps to creating empathic connection

Session two, Sun 24th May 9.30am-1.30pm

(includes 3.5 hours training time and 30 minutes total break time)
- Disconnecting language
- Four ways of listening and responding to others
- Four key ingredients of NVC

Session three, Sat 30th May 9.30am-1.30pm

(includes 3.5 hours training time and 30 minutes total break time)
- Self-empathy exploration
- Extended empathy practice

Session four, Sun 31st May 9.30am-3.30pm

(includes 4.5 hours training time and 60 minutes total break time)
- Each participant will have a session of 30 minutes maximum, during which you will have the opportunity to work through a conflict scenario with either Daren's support or the support of Daren's assisting facilitator, Pauline Doohan.  One or two other participants will be needed to play roles in a conflict roleplay during the session.  Other participants will be able to observe the session.
 Whilst we anticipate that you will learn a lot through observing, you may choose not to join the group for all of the 30 minute sessions during the day.  You are welcome to take a break from as many of the 30 minute sessions as you wish, though we ask you to attend a minimum of five 30 minute sessions, including your own, if you wish to complete the training and receive a certificate of attendance.
- We will finish with a 30 minute session, during which Daren will share other options for following up with NVC and we will have a check out round in the group.

Daren and his assisting facilitator, Pauline Doohan, will provide coaching support throughout the training.

Comments from previous participants:

"The Foundation NVC course with Daren De Witt is the first course I’ve ever done where the learning that has happened within me is a certainty.  Yes I will have to practise but, even if I didn’t, my awareness around language cannot now be undone. The course truly exceeded my expectations.  A huge bonus was the course being split over two weekends. The opportunity this created to live the practice was invaluable.  To top it off, the online setting seemed only to enhance our experience and the bond between us, something we could not have predicted."   – Alia James, participant on Daren's April 2020 online NVC foundation training

“I appreciated Daren’s anecdotes of putting this into practice, his realism, his honesty, his careful pairing and overwhelmingly positive responses, plenty of opportunity to practice, humour and a safe space to explore and be vulnerable.” – R Woolhouse, May 2019

“The NVC foundation training I did with Daren has been one of the most valuable workshops I’ve ever attended!  I’ve become more empathic and more in tune with my needs/feelings.  I still have a long way to go, but I see progress and it’s motivating.” – D Denisjonok, Oct 2018

“Amazing two days experience, with a lot of practice and in-depth material.  Highly recommended!” – M Coman, April 2018

I’m amazed by how much has become clearer to me during this weekend.  Such simple revelations but very necessary ones! – M Montague, Sept 2017

“Daren’s NVC foundation course was perfectly delivered with pure heart, grace, intelligence, wisdom and humour!” – S Daly, May 2017

"Daren's gentle pace, clarity and warmth create an inviting space for deep learning." - J Gretton, Jan 2016

"Daren is a fantastic trainer.  I learned a lot of helpful information and loved the practice sessions.  Every relationship I have has improved 10 fold as a result and I am a much happier person." - S Nordmark, Nov 2015

"Perhaps the best spent 12 hours of my life." - L Phillips, Nov 2015
