Angry Conversations and Name-Calling About Politics Got You Down, or Guarded?
Everywhere we go today we can hear, or read, or contribute to anger and/or name-calling about politics. Some keep their heads down and remain silent. Some jump in with both feet. Many agree that this “style” of “communication” does not bring people together, nor result in greater understanding.
There is another way.
Victoria Kindle Hodson, consultant, trainer, teacher, internationally recognized author, and passionate proponent of respectful interactions between people, will walk us through, and talk us through ways to bring peace and mutual understanding to our communications about controversial political topics, through the use of Nonviolent Communication.
Victoria lives in Ventura, California and is currently developing personalized learning and social-emotional skill development programs for schools. She holds a Masters degree in Psychology and a B.A. in Education.
She is the co-author of four books:
- Discover Your Child’s Learning Style: The Key to Every Child’s Learning Success
- The Compassionate Classroom: Relationship Based Teaching and Learning
- Respectful Parents, Respectful Kids: 7 Keys to Turn Family Conflict into Co-operation
- The No-Fault Classroom: Tools to Resolve Conflict & Foster Relationship Intelligence
In partnership with Sura Hart, Victoria has developed The No-Fault Zone Game—a hands-on communication and conflict resolution tool that is being used widely in homes and classrooms throughout the world.
