Nonviolent Communication workshops coming to WIU

MACOMB, Ill (NEWS3) — A retired Western Illinois University professor is holding two workshops to help introduce how to use Nonviolence Communication (NVC) in the workplace and everyday life.

J. Q. Adams will encourage participants to consider how understanding universal human feelings and needs can help get to the heart of people’s shared humanity and lead to sustained dialogue among members of the Macomb community.

Both sessions will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at WIU. The first session will be held from 3-5 p.m. and there will be another at 6-8 p.m at the Multicultural Center. Walk-in registration will begin at 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Members of the Macomb community are also welcome to attend. There will be no pictures and audio/visual recording allowed.

The workshop is sponsored by the Moving Macomb Forward committee, which is comprised of community and University officials, including the WIU Multicultural Center, the Office of the WIU President, WIU Admissions, City of Macomb elected officials and employees, McDonough County NAACP, McDonough County Sheriff and Macomb Police departments, MAEDCO and the Macomb Area Chamber of Commerce.
