What is Nonviolent Communication?

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a simple, effective and learnable four step process developed in 1964 by psychologist Marshall Rosenberg PhD (shown above).

It has been used successfully around the world to resolve conflicts and to deepen connections in personal relationships, schools, hospitals, corporations and governments. It is an emotionally-intelligent, awareness-based communication approach.

The heart of NVC is to identify universal human needs and what can be done to meet those needs. It is known to be effective even in situations of longstanding conflict or hostility. NVC can open new doors to compassionate connection and action.
