September 16th Teaching and Living the Relationship Window through NVC

Teaching and Living the Relationship Window through NVC

A 6-Week Online Restorative Programme

Facilitators: Judith Lardner and Nicola Reeves


Purpose: For RP trainers, to deepen our understanding about the Relationship Window through the language of Nonviolent Communication (NVC).

When: The program lasts 6 weeks – 16th September – 21st October 2021 – and consists of the following:

Who: Anyone who has completed at least an introductory training in restorative practice   is welcome to join this program.

Where: From the comfort of your own home! Participants must have access to email to receive weekly notices from facilitators. Participants may participate in weekly activities either by phone or by Zoom video conferencing.

What: In addition to taking a week, at the beginning to become familiar with the programme model, and at the end to harvest our learning, we will take one week to explore each of the four panes of the Relationship Window: “To”, “For”, “Not”, and “With”. The activities will include: 

  • 6 Online Talking Circles – Starting on Thursday, 16th September we will meet every week on Zoom from 7:30 – 9.00. 
  • Weekly Practice partner call – Participants will work with a practice partner each week, scheduling a weekly 1-hour call at their convenience. Participants will receive weekly emails from the facilitators with suggestions for how to structure their conversation using empathic listening tools drawn from Nonviolent Communication (NVC). 
  • Daily reflective activity – Participants will receive a weekly email with a suggestion for a daily reflective activity that may take about 15 minutes to complete. The reflective activity may be completed through journaling, meditation, artistic expression, or any other method you choose.

How much: Sliding scale/pay what you can:  €50-100. The amount we request for this 6 week program is the amount we estimate will make the work sustainable. We recognize we all have different levels of income and we are very willing to take time to come to an agreement with anyone who wishes to contribute something other than the requested amount.


Please note places are limited to a maximum of 16 participants, and registration closes on Friday, 10th September, 2021
