River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding

River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding

In the United States alone, the cost of interpersonal violence is over an estimated 300 billion dollars per year. Yet, when a coordinated and strategic approach is taken with community, local and state agencies, this violence is largely preventable.

The River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding takes this very approach by addressing violence with a continuum of prevention strategies involving the general public, at-risk youth populations, and those healing from the otherwise lasting impact of violence.

Join us in our ongoing commitment to prevent, reduce and heal from all forms of violence by establishing safer communities through partnership and collaboration, facilitating cutting edge dialogues, providing workshops and trainings, and embedding the best and new practices in existing systems.

Compassionate Communication Workshop

Saturday, August 1st, 2015 from 10 AM until 3 PM

This workshop is for individuals who have attended one of the previous workshops or those who have a basic understanding and some personal practice with the principles of Nonviolent Communication. 

If this is you, then we welcome you to strengthen your skills and awareness toward connection with others.  We will work on our reactive responses and role play real-life and mock scenarios. After a discussion of the overview of Compassionate Communication, the focus will be on practice.
