A Telecourse Recording with CNVC Certified Trainer John Kinyon from El Sobrante, California, USA

This 2 hour introduction gives a conceptual overview and experiential taste of the NVC mediation learning model developed by John Kinyon and Ike Lasater over the past 7 years. NVC mediation can be applied to conflict in all types of situations -- from organizational and community to personal relationships, and in four mediation contexts – internal, interpersonal, informal, and formal – as well as pre and post mediation. A conceptual framework will be provided followed by experiential learning and practice through improvised triad role-plays and group feedback and harvesting. In the role plays, you have a chance to be in the role of mediator, disputant and observer, and receive invaluable learning and feedback from the disputant and observer roles, as well as in-the-moment coaching. You can then move into the mediator’s chair and put into practice what you’ve just learned.

In the role of mediator, you will learn to:

  • Develop presence and centeredness in the midst of conflict
  • Deepen your skills of empathic listening
  • Translate judgments into need language with greater ease and naturalness
  • Facilitate each party feeling heard and understood to their satisfaction
  • Develop skills to support clear, doable requests and collaborative resolutions
