NVC Academy Theme of the Month

Dallas Nonviolent Communication (NVC) Practice Group

The Dallas Compassionate Communication Practice Group was created on July 2010, by Taylor Duvall, as place for people for people to deepen their NVC practice and meet like-minded people (Compassionate Communication is another name for NVC). Shortly after its creation, H. Scott Clemens agreed to assume the role of facilitator.

The practice group meets every Wednesday from 6:30 - 8:30p, near Forest and Central, and provides an opportunity for you to interact with others using NVC and learn through receiving feedback. Membership is open to new members, if you are interested in attending please contact, H. Scott Clemens.

At each meeting, a donation of $5 - 10 is requested to support the venue that hosts the group. We welcome you whether you are able to to donate or not.
