    DuPage County API presents a Nonviolent Communication Workshop

    Date: Saturday, April 26th
    Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm
    Location: 2S361 Glen Park Rd, Lombard, IL 60148
    Tickets: $10 per family (includes yourself, partner and children). Space is limited, so please buy your tickets soon if you are interested in attending.

    Nonviolent Communication (NVC) language is a way of speaking that promotes understanding between people, successful information exchange and a peaceful resolution of differences. It helps us identify our shared values and needs, encourages us to use language that increases goodwill, and avoids words or phrases that contribute to resentment or lower self-esteem.

    The workshop will be led by Myra Walden of the Alliance for Nonviolent Communication. Myra Walden is a certified NVC trainer and has been teaching NVC for nearly 10 years. She has a B.A. in psychology and a M.A. in clinical psychology. She received her Nonviolent Communication certification from The Center for Nonviolent Communication, a global organization helping people connect compassionately with themselves and one another through Nonviolent Communication language. The Center for Nonviolent Communication was created by Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D.

      I went through the NVC site and found a local certified trainer. She was extremely nice. We spoke about what she'd cover in the workshop and the cost. I found a location that is free and is great for presentations. A lovely mom in our group made a website for the event and then we just started to spread the word about the event. We need 25 tickets to break even, so we are hoping to spread the word in order to cover our cost.
