Freethought Lebanon is conducting a series of online workshops which aim at building the capacities of the freethinking community in Lebanon. The workshops are part of an effort to empower secular activists in the community, both on personal and professional levels, with the skills and knowledge that will ultimately make the collective more effective and impactful.

The second workshop in this series, titled “Nonviolent Communication”, will be conducted by Tanya Awad Ghorra, an international and regional trainer in NVC (Nonviolent Communication) and peacebuilding, who is currently writing her master’s thesis in Nonviolent Education and Conflict Resolution. Tanya is also a TV and radio producer and host, and a voice-over professional for several organizations around the Arab world.

The highly interactive workshop will cover the following themes:

  • Understanding hate/discriminatory speech
  • Theory of nonviolent communication
  • Four steps of nonviolent communication
  • Barriers to effective communication
