Foundations One and Two: Part of a 3-Part Foundations Program

FOUNDATIONS TWO: Empowered Communication!
Have you completed Brooklyn NVC’s “Zen and the Art of Conflict” course (Foundations One) and/or 20-40 hours of NVC training? Would you like to further build your “empathy muscles” and use NVC with confidence, even in challenging situations? If so, please join us for “Empowered Communication,” Brooklyn NVC’s Foundations Two course. This is an eight week program, starting Wednesday, Sept. 27th, meeting from 6:30-9pm at the Empire State Building.

FOUNDATIONS ONE: Zen and the Art of Conflict
Do you have twenty hours or less of NVC training and/or want to further integrate NVC skills? In this program, we take a “direct method” approach of learning and practicing NVC, based on mind-body (kinesthetic) learning and a first-hand, experiential approach. Lots of games and individual and group exercises! This is an eight week program, starting Thursday, Oct. 12th, meeting from 6:30-9pm at the Empire State Building.

Both of these courses are led by Dian Killian, PhD, a CNVC Certified Trainer, with Paul Merrill, a graduate of the N. America Leadership Training Program, assisting.
