CMR 551 - Non-Violent Communication and Crisis Intervention

Course Description: This course is designed to provide students with a thorough overview of the issues of crisis theory, crisis intervention, and nonviolent communication.  You will explore crisis theories as critical times for capitalizing the ability to change, and will explore how episodes of crisis can transform personal, family, social, and community relationships.  You will learn and practice skills for understanding people in crisis, responding to rage-and to the destructive impulses that may arise from rage, and for intervening to prevent escalation to violence.  Through discussions of core principles of different crisis intervention theories and practice sessions, you will learn skills of deep listening, building authentic and empathic relationships, and honoring authentic human connections.
