"Restorative Justice and Social Change: How NVC contributes"

-Conference description:


Nonviolent Communication (NVC) offers a way of relating to others and ourselves in the present moment, rather than letting the past dictate our present. As well as deepening our understanding of the needs of others, we can become more connected to what is alive in us and create a life that is more fulfilling by learning to identify our needs better, and express them powerfully.

This conference will explore the contribution of Nonviolent Communication to social change and Restorative Justice. It will seek to explore how NVC can help us:

• be more fluent in the needs and feelings of others, and achieve more effective outcomes.

• find meaningful answers to the questions "Why me?" and "How could you do that?"

• create possibilities for change in criminal and confrontational behaviour by opening up unmet needs.

• encourage others to cooperate, without the use of coercion or manipulation.

• understand our intentions when we use force e.g. to protect or to punish.

• create a justice system based on respect and understanding rather than power and fear.

• develop restorative conversations enabling social agendas to be addressed and generating safer communities.

The RJC event Restorative Justice and Social Change: How NVC contributes (20th April 2009) explored these issues.
