Forging New Paths through Conflict: Communicating with Clarity, Confidence and Compassion
Part of the Women’s Advance Spring Series
Communicating in the midst of conflict can be difficult, particularly when we believe people are behaving inappropriately or unjustly, and/or our values and strongly held beliefs are being challenged. This interactive workshop introduces participants to nonviolent communication (“NVC”), a process grounded in compassion, empathy and authentic self-expression. The session is designed to teach communication techniques that de-escalate emotionally charged conversations, provide opportunities for more meaningful human connections, and a pathway to constructive resolution of conflict. This workshop will be led by Donna Douglass Williams, Ombudsperson at UCHC.
