While living in southern California I worked as a police trainer teaching various law enforcement agencies and dispatch about the subject of nonviolent communication (NVC) and nonviolent crisis intervention. I also conducted NVC workshops at churches, with various community groups, with consumers of mental health services, and with mental health workers.
In Pittsburgh I taught at the University of Pittsburgh’s Osher program, and in various libraries on the subject of organizing mindfully – using my book. I’ve also conducted NVC workshops in Pittsburgh at the former Shambhala Center in East Liberty, and in libraries.
NVC is based on Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s work (www.cnvc.org). Rosenberg’s “language of the heart” is a common sense method of bridging gaps during conflicts, and creating mutually beneficial strategies rather than aggressive defense-oriented tactics.
