Communicating for Mutual Understanding
…..making life more wonderful with NVC
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is about building bridges of communication. The result is more closeness, more connection, more cooperation, more trust, and less fear. NVC is about making what you want important, and, at the same time, not getting your needs met at the expense of someone else. NVC is about changing language of criticism, judgment, and wrongness. When we blame, shame, and guilt, others generally want to protect themselves. They move away, disconnect, and/or do what we want, but with a resentment that comes back to bite us.
NVC teaches us to use observation, understanding, empathetic honesty, and requests in a way that is clear and concise. Using the language and intent of NVC serves to make everyone’s needs matter… without ever giving up on our own.
Learn how to consistently create the kind of relationships you've always wanted:
Connection, clarity, and confidence with your partner.
Skill in attracting relationship(s) that are fulfilling and enduring and that meet personal needs.
Cooperation and mutual understanding with your children.
Effective and easy communications in your workplace.
How to ask for what you want in a way that people are excited to give it to you.
Ellen Shiro, Counseling Psychologist/Marriage and Family Therapist, meets with individuals, groups, couples, and/or families. She specializes in using the life changing/cutting edge principals and practices developed by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, called NVC. Here's your opportunity to get the big picture of how these tools lead to making everyone's needs matter and how solutions “magically” get clear once needs are revealed. Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul says, "… Nonviolent Communication (NVC) can literally change the world. More importantly, using NVC can change the quality of your life with your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your co-workers and everyone else with whom you interact. I cannot recommend it highly enough."
You may read more about NVC at the Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC.org) or reading Dr. Marshall Rosenberg's book Nonviolent Communication, A Language of Life.
Sessions may be held on line or in person. Online sessions are held from the safety of your own home at a time that is convenient for you .
