I’ve taught classes at Pitt Osher about my organizing mindfully book. and in other venues on topics related to mental health, developmental disabilities, and non-violent crisis intervention and non-violent communication (NVC). As a former police trainer I’ve conducted NVC workshops for law enforcement officers and dispatch, mental health workers, at the Shambhala Buddhist Center in Pittsburgh, in churches, and with many community groups.

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 the gap during conflicts, and creating mutually beneficial strategies rather than aggressive defense-oriented tactics.
