Would You Like to Experience More Harmony and Effectiveness in Your Health Care Environment?
Then learn to Choose Your Words wisely. This guidebook was created to help doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers and anyone who works with patients or clients, anyone can use the skills presented here to integrate Nonviolent Communication into their day to day communication. It is a practical application of the philosophy found in Melanie's book, Humanizing Health Care: Creating Cultures of Compassion with Nonviolent Communication, and guides you through these powerful concepts using exercises that you craft from your own real-life examples.

This book can help you develop clear, compassionate connections with people who rely on you for help. The skills you will learn provide the safety needed for mutually satisfying exchanges so that deep levels of healing and transformation can be realized in the individual and in the working environment. You will learn to notice when you are speaking and acting in ways that are likely to trigger defensive reactions and how to choose language that allows authenticity, understanding and trust to flourish.

Melanie Sears, RN, MBA, has over thirty years experience in all areas of the hospital, home care, and hospice. Her latest nursing position was as a psychiatric nurse on an acute inpatient unit. Her book, Humanizing Health Care with Nonviolent Communication describes her experience working on that unit, delves into the systems that make it difficult to receive compassionate care in the hospital, and illustrates how to apply Nonviolent Communication to create a more humane environment.

She has applied these skills as a health care administrator and a consultant, and has been a trainer for the Center of Nonviolent Communication since 1991. She has presented Nonviolent Communication at conventions, universities, and churches, which people describe as exciting, inspiring, educational, and transformative. She has also helped to expand awareness and understanding of NVC through radio interviews, TV shows, articles, and other writings. She is available to provide training in businesses, hospitals, nursing homes, hospices, and to individuals, couples, and parents.

She has two grown children and has just become a grandmother. You can contact her or learn more about how she uses Nonviolent Communication in her work with individuals, couples and businesses by visiting her web site:
