Suchitra Academy organized a workshop in collaboration with the Centre for Nonviolent Communication (NVC). The workshop was conducted in two sessions, each of which focussed on theoretical understanding as well as the practical implementation of NVC. The sessions made us aware of the alternate ways we can respond to disagreements by understanding the needs of others and ourselves which would help us reach a common ground as humans have common needs to fulfill. The session left us with the idea of ‘humanizing’ emotions instead of ‘analyzing’ them. Besides, it gave us a platform to connect with colleagues we had not interacted with.
