In responding to an event , we can respond in one of four ways. Most of us are familiar with the first two: we can blame ourselves and get depressed or we can blame others and experience anger. NVC introduces two more ways to respond to an event: we can empathize with ourselves, that is connect with our own feelings and needs, or we can empathize with others and connect with another’s feelings and needs.

In NVC, these four ways of responding are playfully symbolized by Jackal ears in, Jackal ears out, Giraffe ears in, and Giraffe ears out. For more information, please visit Kelly Bryson’s website: 'Language of Compassion' at

These plush ears, creatively designed and mounted on a headband, will help with role-playing the above concepts.
