Episode 19: Role Play & Unpacking Role Play (Part 2 of 2)

The episode begins with a response to feedback that suggests I make the podcast and its marketing a little more polished, and then I go on to say a bit about how I understand what one actually does to “practice” NVC. The role play with Marilyn represents the two-step form of learning empathy that I value, and that I’m trying to figure out how to feature more often.

Episode 16: A Bad Dad Redo

In response to a divorce, Kate’s piqued father cut her out of his life. Thirty years later, when she finally had a chance to talk to him on his deathbed, he had throat cancer and an unreconciled heart. We seek some daughterly peace for her through role play.

Episode 13: Working with Jealousy (Part 2 of 2), A Follow-Up Celebration

In Episode 11, Katie and I role-played an upcoming conversation in which she hoped to come to a shared reality about some pain her friend’s actions had occasioned. In this episode, she shares how that conversation worked out. Also, in passing, the NVC Dance Floors get a mention. More information about them can be found here.
