About the Course
Are you looking for ways to create more harmony, closeness and cooperation with the children and young people in your life?
Using the principles and skills of Compassionate Communication (NVC), we will explore ways to nurture lifelong relationships with the children in your life based on deep connection, mutual respect, trust and authenticity.
8 weekly sessions
Tuesday evenings, 6:30 - 9 pm
In this supportive online learning environment, we will explore ways to:
❀ Connect more deeply with your child, even in challenging moments.
❀ Talk so that your child is able to hear you.
❀ Hear what your child is REALLY saying, no matter how they express it.
❀ Inspire cooperation without using threat, punishment, or reward.
❀ Understand where challenging behaviour comes from.
❀ Keep your cool in moments of stress, and have compassion for yourself when you "lose it".
❀ Transform anger into connection.
❀ Bring more joy, fun and love for yourself and your family!
❀ A written summary of each session.
❀ “Homeplay” practices to take home and apply
❀ A zoom recording of the session to view available for three weeks after each session (see Terms and Conditions)
❀ Lifetime access to all written course materials in a private Google drive
How to Register
At Peace Talks, we operate from a gift economy perspective; we would love for our offerings to be received as a gift and we hope that people can likewise see their financial contribution as a gift. Your contribution helps us to meet our needs so we can live, give, and teach from a resourced place. It is our hope that you can find an amount that really feels comfortable to offer without stretching into hardship, while also supporting us to continue doing this work we love so much.
Our current request of $320 per participant for this course gives some indication of the amount we hope to receive in order to support our families and allow us to continue to offer this work. It takes into account the amount of time and resources involved in creating a course like this.
This figure is offered as a guideline only, however, and we are very open to you nominating an amount that works for you and your family (we are also happy with a payment plan).
We make the following requests about financial contribution to this course:
1) We request a deposit of $100 (or another figure you nominate) when you register to secure your place in the course. This gives us some certainty about the number of people intending to join the class so that we can move forward with planning.
2) We request payment of the balance of your financial contribution before the start date of the course. This gives us some ease in planning and, in our experience, creates a more relaxed and harmonious learning environment. If this is likely to be challenging, or you would like a payment plan, please let us know and we can discuss a plan that works for both us.
3) We don't want money or financial stress to prevent anyone from learning NVC! If cost is a barrier that would prevent you attending, please contact us and we will endeavour to reach an arrangement that works for us all. We welcome open discussions about how we can support you to attend!
