Class for nonviolent communication

Provided to the Tribune

Nonviolent communication is a way of speaking that facilitates the flow of communication needed to exchange information and resolve differences peacefully. It helps identify shared values and needs and encourages the use of language that increases goodwill and harmony.

Join Unity at the Lake during “A Season of Peace and Nonviolence” for a three-week class beginning Thursday. The class, which will meet from 7 to 9 p.m. in the room next to the bookstore at Lake Tahoe Community College, will be facilitated by Denese Schellink and Craig Pfleiffle.

With NVC skills people can redirect anger or frustration toward coalition-building cooperative outcomes; create healthy relationships with co-workers, school class mates, partners and spouses; and learn to meet their needs in ways that honor and respect their own values and values of others.
