Auckland workshop to inspire empathy and connection open to CF parents

2 March 2020

A one-day taster workshop on the principles of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is being hosted for the general public and parents in the CF community this April with proceeds going to CFNZ. NVC, sometimes known as Compassionate Communication, aims to strengthen our ability to inspire compassion and to respond compassionately to others as well as ourselves.

Facilitator Wayne, who has a 19-year-old son with CF, explained, “The communication skills gained from NVC have been such a huge support to us when it comes to supporting Ben on his journey that we have decided to offer this day to support others who may also be in a similar position to us”.

Workshop participants will leave with an experience of empathy and connection, ways to make challenging relationships more harmonious, how to stay resourceful in challenging situations, new friends, practical ways to use NVC in day to day situations, and a deeper appreciation of self and those we care about.
