This course equips you with skills for life Our words are powerful. What we say and how we say it, affects our relationships. Empower yourself with practical, learnable skills - you'll be glad you did.
Most of us long for harmony in our relationships, yet so often the way we express ourselves and listen to each other leads to misunderstanding, frustration and disconnection. This course will introduce you to ways of communicating and listening based on “Nonviolent Communication”, also known as “Compassionate Communication” - the revolutionary work of Dr Marshall Rosenberg. This practical, learnable process has been proven to contribute to greater understanding, connection and harmony in any relationship- whether with your family and friends, colleagues or intimate partner, and of course – yourself.
My partner and I took Paulette's online course and even though only after the second session, I found it surprisingly profound and very enlightening. As a physical therapist, I encountered a female patient with a complex medical negligence past which resulted in a radical mastectomy and a full hysterectomy. I already understood she was noticeably angry about it in general and when I accidentally caused her pain around her surgical site, she erupted in shock, tears and anger towards me and also her past. As I knew she had been disappointed by every Male practitioner, doctor, surgeon, oncologist and therapist involved in her case previously I was acutely aware of the emotional backlog I had accidentally invited forth. Paulette's words and teachings from the lesson the night before became instantly relevant. I reflected back to her for about half an hour naming the emotions I witness and reflection my appreciation of what that must have been like for her. Even if I was off with my reflections we were both able to move through what seemed like an immense amount of suppressed grief that seemed buried under a huge amount of anger and blame. She later mentioned that she had never been able to express her deepest emotions and process much of the pain and what seemed at first like a trainwreck turned out to be one of the most tender moments of healing I had witnessed this year. Paulette was able to impress upon me the importance of reflecting emotions as a listener and not trying to change anything for the person speaking and that little piece turned out to be a vital and missing part of this woman's journey. Looking forward to learning more! Alexander C. 2023 Health Practitioner, North Coast NSW
