The purpose of this project was to write a grant to implement a training program for the Certified Nursing Assistant staff and the Social Work staff of Casa Corazon, a transitional, group home for men and women with HIV/AIDS, unable to live independently. The aim of the project was to increase positive health outcomes of the residents of Casa Corazon by creating a training program for the staff that would teach them communication skills enabling them to communicate more empathically and compassionately. The instruction was based on the philosophy and practices of Marshall Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication (NVC). Applications of NVC in Healthcare are discussed. The strong connection between empathy, compassion, Nonviolent Communication, and better health outcomes is detailed. Neither the actual grant nor the funding of this grant was a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
