Our children are important to us, yet sometimes we struggle to parent in ways we feel good about. Join with other parents to learn how to use compassionate communication to understand the developmental stage needs behind your children's behavior and how to transform conflicts into trust-building opportunities.

Learn & practice the fundamentals of Marshall Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication, i.e. empathy for self and others and everyone's needs matter. Presented by Susan Kaplan, M.S.W., M.P.A. (Accredited Facilitator, Rocky Mountain Center for Compassionate Communication).
“I live my life in widening circles that reach out across the world.”
