Is this pure NVC training?

Many people who attend my programs are interested in how to apply Marshall Rosenberg’s model of Nonviolent Communication to their personal development journey. As a result, we often refer to the principles and practices of NVC.

The scope of exploration also includes broader principles of nonviolence, compassion, and mindfulness, as well as insights from relational and integral psychology and spiral dynamics.

In my facilitation, guidance, and teaching, I draw from whatever resources seem relevant or useful to the moment, such as archetypes, shadow work, and polarity theory, as well as the work and teachings offered by various NVC teachers.

None of my programs are offered as a training in NVC, per se, nor are they focused on the “correct” application of NVC tools. Instead, it is deeply aligned with the consciousness of NVC and has a broader, playful focus on personal development that both transcends and includes the practices of NVC. We focus on supporting the personal development work needed to help cultivate a just, peaceful, and sustainable world in which everyone’s needs matter, suffering is alleviated, and conflict is transformed into connection.

Who is Yvette?

As a teacher, writer, psychologist, and consultant, I integrate core insights from multiple wisdom traditions and offer various programs for community learning as well as one-on-one consulting and therapy. My approach incorporates my training in mind-body medicine, somatic experiencing, diversity and inclusiveness, nonviolent communication, and integral-relational-cultural psychology.

I’m an active supporter of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), and the content and process of this group reflects my integration of NVC principles into broader frameworks. It’s not representative of “pure NVC” or “official NVC.”
