Craig and I have a discussion prompted by a Facebook Post he made that I found myself out of sympathy with. I contacted him in order to listen, but was stimulated and talked a lot.
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.
We take a detour when some new information gets added to a work situation role play.
Katie and I roleplay a difficult conversation she anticipates having with a friend.
The training wheel sentence–“When [observation] I feel X because I’m needing Y, would you be willing to [request]”–is a tool for NVC training, but in the real world it’s often best used in parts. Here Alejandro and I discuss this delicate point.
Despite excellent strategies, relationship communication can still be hard. Here we linger on a minor, but painful, incident–trying to imagine a giraffe response.
We talk about talking NVC, before getting down to cases which will be featured in future podcasts.
This episode begins with me getting some feedback on my own NVC practice, and then I work with a friend in anticipation of a high stakes conversation he’ll be having the next day.
Mike and I talk about how a co-housing arrangement turned into a deep bond.
We discuss her experience with NVC, and her film on the Vashon Island Family Camp.
