This workshop is designed for anyone interested in learning the fundamentals of Nonviolent Communication, as shared by Freedom Project in prisons. 

In this interactive day-long workshop participants will:

  • learn how a Freedom Project facilitator shares Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in the prison classroom.
  • experience how Kathleen Macferran uses visual aids to introduce NVC concepts, elicits people’s participation and responds to challenging questions.
  • participate in engaging activities such as playing NVC poker or using the Jackal and Giraffe puppets 

Each workshop reflects the unique perspectives of its participants. If you have been curious about NVC or even dreamed about sharing NVC with others, we encourage you to join us on Friday, June 6. We expect all Freedom Project volunteers to attend this training either as an introduction to the essentials of NVC or as a refresher. Sharing NVC Essentials will be offered again later in the year.

This program will be held 9 am-5 pm on Friday, June 6 at Freedom Project’s Seattle offices. There is a $125 workshop participation fee. The program is $25 for Freedom Project volunteers with current DOC badges. Scholarships are available.
