Our Biased Mind
How our brain tends to disrupt connection
9 October 2021
How come we think we are right and others are wrong?
And why do others think they are right and we are wrong?
When we discover NVC (Nonviolent Communication), it may seem as if we have found a way to resolve all problems and conflicts.
We throw ourselves enthusiastically into all kinds of human affairs. We try to make contact by listening to others with empathy and expressing ourselves honestly. After a short while we notice that it does not seem so easy as we initially thought. We might start to doubt whether NVC really works. Or we think that others do not really understand us. Or we perceive ourselves as incapable of making real connections.
Understanding how our brain works will be very helpful when communicating with both ourselves and other people. Seeing our brain’s fantastic potential but also its limitations makes it easier for us to create contact and cooperation.
In this webinar, Joachim Berggren will present a view on our brain from an evolutionary perspective. He will share how the awareness of our mind’s way of functioning combined with the knowledge of NVC can increase our possibility of creating connection and mutual understanding. There will also be space for questions and your reflections.

CNVC Certified Trainer and communication consultant
I work with groups and individuals who want to be able to communicate better and build sustainable connections in their family, with their friends, at their workplace and in the bigger community. I am offering lectures, workshops, mediation and individual training online and in person. I came into contact with NVC in 2005 and in 2009/2010 I participated in my first annual program with Friare Liv (Liv Larsson and Kay Rung). I have participated in a wide range of NVC workshops both in Sweden and abroad. Since 2010, I have been sharing and teaching NVC myself. In 2017, I became a certified NVC trainer by CNVC. My main focus within NVC has been to teach the NVC fundamentals, community building and to organize major events, such as the European and the Swedish NVC festivals. What captivates my interest lately is how we humans develop both as individuals and groups and how this evolutionary drive affects our ability to learn and integrate NVC into our lives.
