What is Nonviolent Communication - NVC

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a practical, learnable process based on universal human values that helps people connect more deeply with themselves and others. It promotes congruency with one’s values in thought, speech and action.

The purpose of NVC is to create a quality of connection where everyone’s needs are equally valued and to come up with strategies to meet those needs - a practice that contribute to connection, harmony and peace.

Nonviolent Communication develops one’s ability to transform blame, anger and criticism into understanding, effective communication and peaceful resolution of conflict.

Nonviolent Communication focuses our attention on what matters most, leading to language and actions that are efficient, effective and full of integrity.

Nonviolent Communication strengthens our ability to inspire compassion and teamwork from others. It guides us to reframe how we express ourselves and how we hear others.

Nonviolent communication as developed by Marshal B. Rosenberg is a way of opening space for deep and sincere connections that encourage people to expressing their needs and feelings in an honest and full-hearted way. It sthrives for equality instead of hierarchy, connection and readiness to show vulnerability instead of convincing others of their wrong doing. This specific language also gives space for efficiency, clarity, concrete strategies and requests that will best serve the needs of everyone included through joyful giving and receiving.

Rosenberg developed Nonviolent communication on the base of Carl Rogers' humanistic psychology and on his experiences of mediation in high-conflict areas all over the world. Since its beginning in 1970’s NVC has become renowned and recognised. Today, there are hundreds of thousands of practitioners and around 700 certified trainers all over the globe, organised and supported by the Center for nonviolent communication. People are using the skills provided by NVC in various contexts: from personal relationships to business setting, school systems, NGOs, activism, restorative work in jails, municipalities, police, community setups, mediation …
