CG02 Talk with tamariki

Talk with tamariki is a beginner-level series introducing Nonviolent Communication concepts and their application to caring for tamariki.

This course brings a holistic approach to understanding your tamariki’s behaviours, and teaches the tools and awareness to address the difficult situations that may arise in your role as a caregiver. This course is based on Dr Marshall B. Rosenberg PhD's Nonviolent Communication (NVC).

Learning aims:

  • Respond to your tamariki’s needs rather than react to their behaviour.
  • Increase your ability to handle stressful situations with a calm presence.
  • Create an environment where tamariki feel heard, valued, and supported.
  • Build trust and connection.
  • Understand and communicate limits with confidence and empathy.
  • Balance your needs with the needs of others.
  • Move from reactivity to responsiveness.
  • Discover blind spots in the use of language that keep us trapped in habitual stereotypes, bias, and limiting beliefs.
