I've been asked to do a training on Nonviolent Communication for mentors in the Boys to Men program in January 2015. Learning to listen to others' feelings and needs is a great way to actually become more empathic. I'll be teaching some of these basic skills and also leading experiential exercises so mentors can practice responding in "real life" situations with the young men they work with. Looking forward to this!
