"Peaceful Language"

Activity

Summary

Participants will learn to use language that does not reference violence and to observe a situation without making judgements.

Instructional Strategies

1. Encourage participants to observe a situation without judgement.
2. Help them identify their feelings about the situation
3. Tell them to think about their needs.
4. Have them request actions they would like done to meet their needs.
5. Use language and references that do not have connections (direct and indirect) to violent themes.
6. Think about common phrases that have violent connections: bullet points on documents, "Break a leg" to mean "good luck", or "Let me take a stab/shot at it" to mean "try".
7. Come up with substitutes and more descriptive and neutral language to use instead of these phrases.
