Crucial Conversations study group
Hi All, Wow. The last few weeks have been a whirlwind. I haven't scheduled anything because I've been running around to conferences out of state for work, and just kind of busy in general. Also, my uncle had a sudden heart attack. He's in Florida and is alive (thank goodness), so that's something that might take me out of state soon. I want to go see him. So.... I also wanted to meet you all! I miss my NVC group! Recently, I've started reading my Crucial Conversations book again and I thought it would be nice to maybe have a study group. This is NOT NVC per se but there is some overlap and it gives some alternate ways of saying things that I thought might be interesting to study. Please only sign up for this group if you can commit to coming on a regular basis. I understand if you have to miss one or two but the expectation is that you'll consistently show up for 11 weeks to study this with me. There are 11 chapters in this book. This means that we will meet 11-12 times. I'm scheduling meetings once every two weeks on a Saturday (for now). I might have to change this up if something comes up for me. But I hope to keep it fairly regular. We'll meet in my apartment. I'll send you the address after you sign up and before the date of the meetup. It's a humble place. Not the Taj Mahal. Please bring something to drink and the book if you get it. It would be great for everyone to read the chapter before we go over it. It's called Crucial Conversations by Patterson, Grenny, McMillan, and Switzler. I know this may seem like a big commitment. We'll see if anyone wants to do it. I won't be offended if you're not up for it. Have a great day and hope to see you soon! PS. I might take a trip to Florida to see my uncle soon which may mean that I change a date or two in the next few weeks. Please forgive me if this is the case. Patricia PPS: I'm asking for a 1 time donation of $10 to help Joseph keep up the website. This is optional. PPPS: I'll take breaks for the holidays and such so as to not interfere with that.

What we're about

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a communication framework developed by psychologist Marshall Rosenberg, PhD. The NVC framework provides a set of communication tools that enable us to achieve:
- A habit of responding rather than reacting
- Greater levels of connection and mutual understanding
- Clarity when we experience anger, resentment, fear, etc.
- A state of openness, possibility

Other things we could call NVC:
- needs-focused communication
- collaborative communication
- communication for mutual understanding

We are a group committed to learning and practicing Nonviolent Communication together. Each meetup will consist of practical exercises focused on a specific topic.
