NVC Lab: The power of honesty

Get fluent in NVC

This practice group is designed to support NVC learners in getting fluent in NVC. Just like a language lab, we work on real-life situations in a safe environment, for strengthening our NVC skills. You can expect to receive loads of empathy form the facilitator and the group, and to have the possibility to role play and brainstorm for using NVC in specific situations.
