Here's what some former participants have to say about the Integration Program:
  • "The integration program has helped me gain a level of trust of others that I really didn't have before which has allowed me to open up and be a far more authentic human being." – Alton, from Swanville
  • "After the first workshop my partner saw the positive impact the Integrated Program had on my communication skills. That alone is well worth the price." – Noreen, from Bar Harbor
  • "I feel a wonderful sense of freedom with new awareness, and in many ways have transformed my thinking. Thank you, Peggy and Leah!" – Solange, from Falmouth

Level 1/ Introductory Offerings

     Level 1 topics include:
  • historical background; key foundations and assumptions;
  • the 4 Steps: observation, feelings, needs, and requests;
  • empathy, the energy that allows the process to work.
This level is for the beginner, as well as those who have read books and seen tapes of the process and now want to have an experience trying it out with others.

Level 2/ Intermediate Trainings

     These workshops are for participants who have completed a Level 1 workshop and want more personalized practice integrating NVC skills into real life situations. These experiential workshops deepen our understanding and use of NVC in our everyday lives. A variety of empathy exercises and role-plays from the participants' current life situations enrich this process.

Contact the Maine NVC Network to schedule a Level 2 workshop in your area.
