  • Nonviolent Communication by Marshall Rosenberg
    September Virtual Book Discussion for Parents
    December 8, 2020
    8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Our virtual parenting book discussion group seeks to provide parents a sense of community and support as we raise our children through difficult and unprecedented times. Although this event is intended for parents, all are welcome to participate.

We are navigating a society that has grown increasingly divided. To say that tensions are high feels like an understatement. As parents, we feel the heavy weight of conflicts whether they exist within the walls of our own homes, in our local communities, or the wider world.

Marshall Rosenberg provides us with a different paradigm which empowers us to diffuse even the most volatile situations with our words alone. In his book Nonviolent Communication, this renowned peacemaker presents a complete system for speaking our deepest truths, addressing our unrecognized needs and emotions, and honoring those same concerns in others. Let’s unpack the nonviolent communication process together and discover the ways we can apply Rosenberg’s techniques in our own lives
