  • Hearing “NO” Workshop For parents experienced with Nonviolent CommunicationI would like to support you in your ongoing practice of NVC and in grappling with internalizing NVC into your daily life. One place that can be challenging is hearing someone say “no” to a request that you have made.  If you’ve spent time carefully crafting the request, hearing “no” can be really painful!
