Nonviolent Communication (NVC)
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) was originated by Marshall Rosenberg (1934 – 2015) over a period of about 40 years, as he dedicated his life to understanding what separates us and connects us, what brings us to violence and disconnection and what brings us to resolution and peaceful coexistence.
During that time he discovered that when we identify, understand and connect to our universal human needs and values, rather than diagnosing and judging, we have a much greater ability to understand one another in a way that empowers us to resolve conflict with empathy and compassion.
