    Workshop: Every Word Matters

    Words can cause hurts and words can build others up. Controlling the tongue is self-restraint with words, having the wisdom to know what to say and saying it, but equally knowing when not to speak and saying nothing. One may have great education and learning but not have wisdom. Wisdom, or the lack of it, is what lies behind our conversations. This will be a practice session for teachers and parents who want to work on improving how to speak positively to the children in your care. This workshop will provide a safe place to make mistakes we want to avoid making in the home or classroom, after we learn some important principles of how to speak wisely to our children, colleagues and others, even ourselves.

    Workshop: Non-violent communication

    Nonviolent Communication is a communication process developed by Marshall Rosenberg (USA). It focuses on three aspects of communication: self-empathy, empathy, and honest self-expression.

    Nonviolent Communication is based on the idea that all human beings have the capacity for compassion and only resort to violence or behavior that harms others when they do not recognize more effective strategies for meeting needs.
