Part 2: Insight

About the ‘ Nonviolent and Effective Communication 2’ training

In this training, you will work deepening your insight. Nonviolent and Effective Communication 2 aims to go deeper into the dynamics of relationships and communication and is designed to further anchor and expand the skills acquired during Nonviolent and Effective Communication 1.

We will use previously acquired skills to go deeper and build on the foundation of Nonviolent and Effective Communication 1. The acquired skills can then be applied directly to both your work and private life.

This is a 6-day training. Every training day has a specific central topic. The training days are spaced over 3 months in spring and 3 months in autumn. The time between the training days and the spacing over a longer period of time gives you plenty of opportunities to experiment with the lessons learned.

The following topics are covered:

  • Intimate relationships
  • Dealing with anger
  • Feedback
  • Empathy and self-empathy
  • When life is turned upside down
  • Expressing appreciation
