• The American Corner Budapest in co-operation with MigHelp began the semester with a Nonviolent Communication (NVC) workshop, conducted by EVA RAMBALA, Certified Trainer of the International Center for Nonviolent Communication. NVC is effective in helping people suspend judgment, freeing them from prejudice and culturally-patterned expectations. This greatly facilitates intercultural interaction. After the first introductory session on January 27th, MigHelp will continue to host the event series. Part two of NVC will be focusing on LEARNING FROM CRITICISM. The topic of criticism is important and by NVC standards, it is equally dangerous to react to criticism by thinking that the criticism is only about the person who criticises and the person being criticised has nothing to do with it. Thus, at the workshop, we will practise how to react to criticism: how to sort out the valuable message embedded in it, how to learn from it and how to let go the rest. Please note that limited seats are available. :: Participation is on a first register first serve basis. :: RSVP is required via email to <>

    Would you like to be able to stand up for yourself in a way that evokes cooperation and deeper connection? Are you fed up with trying your best to communicate, only to find that your intention is not getting through and that you end up with more issues? Would you like to be able to hear not just what people are saying but what is in their hearts? Nonviolent Communication (NVC) has been called the “language of life”. It was developed by US psychologist Marshall B. Rosenberg in the sixties, and is now practiced in more than 70 different countries worldwide. By focusing on each person’s feelings and needs and by working with these, NVC helps people to find common ground beyond their cultural differences, as needs are neutral and shared by all of us.
