David McCain’s life purpose is to change the world by making relationships work. His trainings are based on the Compassionate (Nonviolent) Communication that offers simple wisdom and practical tools to improve relationship. David McCain has used the Compassionate Communication model as a guide since 2000. After applying the model transformed his “rocky” relationship with his father, he began sharing the model with others in 2002. He specializes in a wide range of communication-skills trainings including self-care, active listening, giving and receiving feedback, and conflict transformation. He’s excited to share the powerful skills of Compassionate Communication to help businesses in Northern Arizona have greater success.  His website is www.communicatingwithheart.com and he can be reached at davewithheart@gmail.com.

 Sarah Edmonds, sedmondsphd@gmail.com928-830-4661

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

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.
