Miki Kashtan held a 4-day Convergent Facilitation workshop for Israelis, Palestinians and others in the West Bank in 2013. She wrote about the workshop here. This 3-minute video was created to describe and raise funds for the workshop. (Although the cover image here is mysteriously taken from the Indian workshop below it, this is a different video!)
Miki Kashtan on group decision-making at the 2011 Making Collaboration Real Conference in San Francisco:
Miki gives a keynote speech, titled “For the Benefit of all Children: A Compassionate Perspective on Bullying,” at a community conference held by the Albany Unified School District in CA in 2011. Her blog post about it is here.
Miki is interviewed by Edwin Rutsch for the Empathy Documentary Project. Taped on May 22, 2009 at the BayNVC offices in Oakland CA. Some questions asked: What is Empathy? What does it feel like? What is a metaphor for empathy? What are benefits of sharing empathy? And personal stories of having learned an insight into the nature of empathy. Edwin’s interviews with other BayNVC trainers are here. See also the Center for Building a Culture of Empathy.

The Conflict Hotline: From 2009-11 Berkeley Community Television broadcast 22 episodes of the Conflict Hotline, a monthly television show featuring Miki Kashtan and other BayNVC trainers. A Conflict Coach, usually Miki, guided other trainers and practitioners through role-plays in order to support callers and other viewers in learning about using NVC for resolving conflicts and for healing. Many people found this to be an exciting way to bring NVC alive for viewers. You can watch a trailer (3:25), here. See descriptions of the 22 episodes with links to the videos here, or go straight to search the videos on the BayNVC YouTube channel here.
