Do you find yourself unhappy with a situation, but just not knowing what to do about it? Are you afraid if you open your mouth you will only make things worse? How do you engage another with clarity and compassion to address your needs while also addressing the other’s needs? We will explore these and related issues using principles and skills of nonviolent communication grounded in an understanding of conflict resolution theory and practice.
Anna Cassilly teaches courses in mediation and prejudice reduction/diversity appreciation, as well as providing mediation, training, and facilitation services through her business, Growing Peace. Over the past 25 years Anna has been supporting people to acquire the communication skills necessary to resolve conflicts, and more importantly, prevent many from arising in the first place. With a deep conviction that world peace begins within, she emphasizes the shifts needed to live more peaceful inner lives, laying the foundation for supportive, caring interpersonal and intergroup relations.
