Five Tuesday Sessions

This interactive video webinar with Jim and Jori Manske, certified CNVC Trainers who've shared practices and tools with schools in Hawai'i and beyond will support you as a teacher, director, SRO, administrator, community youth org professional, parent and educator to...

...learn about, practice, and make use of tools that can help shift school climates and diffuse conflicts.

 In this 5-week interactive course with breakout groups and practices, Jim and Jori will guide us through the key points that underpin the cultivation of NVC practice in schools (and related systems of human interaction):

setting an intention to connect in the service of compassionate giving & receiving.  Some strategies to support the Zero Point are:
    •    Attend to your own resourcefulness and care for self
    •    Connect to what is most important to you
    •    Open to the willingness to be vulnerable
    •    Connect to care other and a willingness to listen to and discover what is important to the other
    •    Consider what you are grateful for in this relationship

1. Inviting:  

opening a dialogue to increase chances of connecting in the way you want
    •    Consider the Field:  Do conditions support connection?
    •    Consider sharing a gratitude relevant to the relationship
    •    Share brief vulnerability of your feelings and needs
    •    Make observations, rather than evaluations of right or wrong, good or bad
    •    Focus on the Present for connection
    •    End on a request that could invites connection


2. Self-Empathy:    

noticing and recovering from your own reactivity, for example:
    •    Notice tension or resistance
    •    Give yourself permission to be feeling what you feel
    •    Extend this permission of humanness to others
    •    Re-Source (e.g. Gratitude, Amusement, Love)
    •    Choose again

3. Vulnerable Honesty:

expressing the deepest connection to your observations, feelings, needs and requests that you are willing to share


4. Empathy:  

 acknowledging what is alive in the other to support understanding
For example:  "So, for you..."
Reflect feelings, needs, observations, requests, wishes rather than judgements

5. Confirmation Request:  

determining if you have expressed clearly and are understood
For example:  "Was I clear?  What did you hear is important to me?"

6. Feedback Request:  

inviting other to share what is important to them
For example:  "How are you right now?"

7. Gratitude:

acknowledging gratitude to support safety, trust, and resilience - "Thank you!"

8. Action Request:  

offering a next step to address needs identified
    •    Stated in the Positive (what you do want, rather than what you don’t want)
    •    Needs-based (everyone’s needs matter)
    •    Open to outcome  (a proposal vs a demand)
    •    Concrete/Specific  (clarity of action to be taken vs a vague wish)
    •    Present, actionable with at least one step now, eg “How do you feel about this?”
