Hosted by Micah and Susan
We were joined by Katherine Betts and Barbara Bash, practitioners of NVC and stewards of the See No Enemy - Hear What Matters community of practice. We talk about Non Violent Communication (NVC), what it means, and how they each came to this work.
Katherine Betts has a passion for nature, dancing, authentic connection, & practices that center well being for all. She is a Restorative Circles Practitioner and Trainer Candidate with the Center for Nonviolent Communication. Her style and methods are informed by relational neuroscience including attachment theory & poly vagal theory. Katherine has been co-facilitating events since 2010 and has worked with teens, incarcerated adults, various community groups, families, couples & individuals. She is currently co-facilitating an NVC practice series called See No Enemy ~ Hear What Matters as well as volunteering with Family of Woodstock’s Restorative Justice Initiative Program & managing HudsonValleyNVC.org’s website & newsletter. Along with a deep passion for participating in and contributing to practices that restore interpersonal connection and well being, Katherine is fueled and nourished by time in nature and dancing.
