Thoughts, Words, Actions, Coming From The heart
“If we are to reach real peace in the world, we shall have to begin with the children.”
- Mahatma Gandhi
Giraffe Talk is communicating with thoughts, words and actions that come from the heart. This program is called Giraffe Talk because giraffes are known for having huge hearts. Young “giraffes” practice new compassionate communication skills for making life more wonderful! The class is based on Marshall Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication, also referred to as Compassionate Communication.
Young Giraffes will practice speaking in Giraffe Talk through improv, role play, stories, puppets, games and videos. Their new skills are applied to relationship issues with friends, family, school peers and teachers.
Five weekly classes, 3 hours each classes, 15 hours total.
