In this theory there is a greatamount of social element.
5. We could network NVC with other similar processes and approachesto build a broader agreement on what the important underlyingprinciples (dynamics, understandings, values, etc.) are that makethese approaches "similar," so that they can all seetheir relative value, and so that different practitioners cancall on each other in specific situations where their expertisewould be most helpful, with full confidence that the overall positivedirection of the work would be maintained. To me the set of "similar"approaches includes most respectful (especially empathic) dialogicforms and most theories and methodologies of self-organization. Much of the co-intelligence hodge-podge of processes could beincluded in this category. An example of a shared underlyingprinciple would be the principle of "reflection" or"mirroring" what the other side is saying (or tryingto say), in an effort to understand them and have them _feel_they are really understood. This principle is central to NVC,SCG's mediated dialogue, active listening, and dynamic facilitation,to name just a few.

'Neo-Hahnian' (NH) beliefs assume that adventure experiences 'build character', 'develop persons', 'actualise selves', or have therapeutic effects associated with changes in personal traits. In social psychological terms NH thought is 'dispositional' in that it favors explanations of behaviour in terms of consistent personal traits. This paper critically reviews NHism in a psychosocial-historical context, and counters that outdoor adventure education programs do not build character, but may provide situations that elicit particular behaviours. Brookes concludes that belief in the possibility of 'character building' is a source of bias, not a foundation of outdoor education.

Zajonc: Social Facilitation - Babson College
An example of a social-systemic need might be "sharedvalues". Although each individual in the system needs tohave values of their own, to guide their lives, the "sharedness"of (or conflict among) those values, person-to-person, has fargreater impact on the health of a collective (family, organization,community, society) than it does on the individual people involved. A system characterized by shared values will be far strongerand healthier than a system where the values are fragmented. (If we express that need as "internal values-coherence",then we could say that individuals have that need, as well. Butthe creation of "internal values-coherence" in an individualand in a community are very different activities. The uncoveringof "internal values coherence" as a need of a particularcommunity -- and the facilitation of such coherence in that community(the meeting of that need) -- would be powerful social changework that, at the societal level, seems to me exactly analogousto what NVC currently does at a personal and interpersonal level.)
