Raising Emotionally Intelligent, Resilient and Compassionate Children … with Nonviolent Communication

In virtual (Zoom) conversation with Certified Nonviolent Communication (NVC) Trainer Filippa Araki and Trainer Candidate Leena Savolainen. Monday August 9th 2021.

August 9, 2021 @ 9:30 am until 11:30 am AEST

Who is this webinar for?

Anyone who is keen to be part of raising emotionally intelligent, resilient and compassionate children. This includes parents, teachers, child care workers, NVC candidate and trainers, guidance counsellors, health workers, social workers and more.

Our Focus

We will start our time with hearing some stories and reflections from Filippa and Leena’s experience of parenting and how Nonviolent Communication (NVC) has influenced that. We will then open the conversation to you so we can explore together common challenges you face in parenting or otherwise supporting and educating children. The focus of our conversation will include: How do I …

  • raise emotionally intelligent children?
  • equip my children to cope with an uncertain world?
  • get my child to cooperate without forcing them?
  • deal with my child’s big feelings?
  • engage with my child’s tantrums?
  • cultivate kindness & compassion in my children?
  • take care of myself in the process of all this?


We see you leaving this webinar with a fresh sense of presence – with yourself and your children, resources you can follow up to build your capacity and some specific approaches you might start to use straight away.

Filippa offers: “At the end of our webinar, I would love people to feel inspired & empowered and have a strong sense of hope and possibility that we can create a more peaceful and compassionate world through transforming the way we relate to our children.”
