    124-The Birthday Cry - Part 1

    Episode 124 starts out with Dr. B singing a birthday song to Heather. And, from there, they pivot into a conversation about birthdays and the difficulties connected to them. In the interaction, they model what a back and forth dialogue sounds like when employing reflection, needs guesses, connecting requests and expression using observations, feelings, and needs. Listen in and see if you can follow along and note the NVC-based practices in the conversation. We hope this episode meets your needs for authenticity, learning, and some fun!

    122-NVC Gone Wrong!

    In this Episode, Dr. B and Heather talk about a recent incident Dr. B had where she used a "connecting request" - to make sure the person was open to hearing her and, even though, the other person said "yes," his response to Dr. B's offering indicated otherwise. So, here is a discussion about how there is more to a connecting request than just getting a "yes." Also, they discuss the importance of empathy first!

    120-Cindy Has it Out with Heather - NVC Style!

    Listen in to Episode 120 when Heather and Dr. B do empathy in real time. As explained in the podcast, Dr. B got a little triggered when learning about Heather's plans for the holidays. They thought it might be fruitful for their listeners to hear a
    "real, " organic, conversation when there is a bit of disharmony to work out. And no, no one gets clobbered - in fact, just the opposite. Enjoy!

    119-How to Get Your Partner to Give You Empathy!

    Join Heather on Dr. B on this engaging episode where they talk about how you can't really "get" anyone to do anything - at least without a cost. Then they go on to discuss the herculean effort it takes to stay in integrity with NVC and model it, rather than teach it or force it - and, in so doing - get the thing you want... connection.

Practical takeaways for learning NVC

I really like this podcast because each episode is focused on a specific facet of NVC and offers practical takeaways for putting it into practice in your life.I like that they aren’t too long so you don’t get overloaded with information. The hosts are fun to listen to as well so it’s educational and entertaining!

Dr B is legit

I am a continuing student of Dr. B. I’ve had various courses and read books about NVC, but nothing has made the practice so accessible and relevant as Dr B’s style of teaching and applying the material! Thanks so much Dr. B for sharing your wisdom with the world!
