Radio NV, 15 October 2019

At the studio of Radio NV — an interview with the Head of the Ukrainian Centre for Nonviolent Communication and Reconciliation “Dignity Space” Olena Hantsyak-Kaskiv about nonviolent communication and its role in resolving conflicts in Ukraine.

“It’s the language of communication. It’s about having a good connection with yourself and making sure that the other person hears you, and then you can tell them anything. But very often, the person doesn’t hear, and not because they don’t want to hear but because they also have a lot to say. It’s very important that such а person satisfies the need to be heard, seen, and when you have that connection, you can convey your own thoughts.” “People intuitively seek sincerity and acceptance”

On the 2 d of October the world celebrates the International Day of Nonviolence

“Nowadays, Ukraine desperately needs to have such experts in peace-building and I believe that it would not only increase unity and strength in our country but also make it harder for anyone who attempts to divide us from the outside to do so”. ~ Olena Hantsyak-Kaskiv
