Compassionate Communication: A Language for Conflict Book Study
Yavapai College Prescott Campus
Thursdays – Sept 14 – Oct 19, 2017 – 6:00pm – 8:00pm

This course is geared to deepen skills for compassionate communication enthusiasts, focusing on navigating conflict, mediating difficult conversations and working with anger. We will use the process as presented by Marshall B. Rosenberg in his book Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life, 3rd edition. Participants will use their familiarity with the NVC steps to explore the surprising purpose of anger. Then, working with a variety of examples, experiential exercises, and discussions, participants will go on to apply the steps of NVC to start resolving conflicts more easily. Prerequisite: eight hours of NVC study. Third edition books may be purchased from the instructor ($10) or from any other source of your choosing.

Sarah Edmonds,, 928-830-4661

I am a psychologist in private practice, offering psychotherapy informed by nonviolent communication for children, teenagers, adults, and couples.

I completed the 2007 Parent Peer Leadership Training Program sponsored by the Center for Nonviolent Communication and Bay NVC, taught by Inbal Kashtan, certified NVC trainer and author of “Parenting from the Heart.” I have worked individually with certified NVC trainer Robert Gonzales, as well as attended NVC workshops with Sura Hart, Sylvia Haskvitz, Mary MacKenzie, and presentations by Marshall Rosenberg.

I also offer parenting classes and training for organizations on how to use NVC in the workplace. I’ve conducted workshops for the Arizona Psychological Association, Boys to Men Arizona, and West Yavapai Guidance Center Children’s Team.

Through my private practice as a psychologist, I use NVC in working with individuals, couples, parents and children, and in mediation.
