The Art of Powerful Non-Defensive Communication, Taking the War Out of Our Words
On Saturday, November 10, 2012, Sharon Strand Ellison (http://www.pndc.com) will conduct a one-day workshop in the Mid-Atlantic for all persons interested in practical ways to communicate Peace. The workshop’s focus will demonstrate communicative disarmament: moving from the common communication model that is built on defensiveness and power struggle to a new paradigm that has a completely non-defensive base. Ellison’s approach introduces a uniquely powerful blend of vulnerability and honesty based on curiosity and authenticity.
“I worked with and taught conflict resolution and mediation for much of my career as a School Psychologist. Sharon Ellison presents things in a way that is both easy to use and effective. I am going to this conference on Saturday even though I've read the book and listened to the book on CD. The more practice I get the more this will help me become part of the peaceful person I want to be.” --Judy Bezon, Brethren Disaster Ministries and Children’s Disaster Services
