This is a 7-week Communication Skill Building Group to develop effective techniques and avoid common traps when having difficult conversations. This group is based on principles and strategies of Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s International work on Nonviolent Communication. Students will explore patterns of alienating communication in their personal lives and practice skills that promote accurate verbal expression, boost receptivity and state needs effectively. This group can help students uncover and express difficult feelings and bring them closer to getting their needs met. Learned skills are relevant for personal relationships, group settings as well as professional lives.
