Heart to Heart helps parents, caregivers and educators who are called to be a healing presence in their families and communities raise thriving children. We do this by forming supportive learning communities and teaching four essential skills, based on Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication and other sources. These skills are mindfulness, empathy, decision-making, and conflict transformation: Mindfulness, Empathy, Decision-Making, and Conflict Resolution (MEDC).
