June 10th, Exploring Values and Needs

Exploring Values and Needs

Co-Facilitators:  Joe Power and Judith Lardner

Purpose: The purpose of this program is to deepen our consciousness of values from the Restorative perspective and needs from the NVC perspective; and also to become more fluent in the language of needs and values.

Circles transform conflicts into opportunities by applying ancient wisdom about human relationships. This wisdom begins with appreciating the role that values have in human conduct. Values are our compass in life. The values we bring to a situation determine how we respond. Before dealing with any conflict, therefore, we need to clarify our values. What values can help us work through our differences in the best way possible?”
