Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a life-changing way of interacting. It is a process conceived by author and international peacemaker Dr. Marshall Rosenberg designed to help human beings increase their capacity to relate compassionately even under trying circumstances. By consciously choosing our responses based on meeting needs instead of on expressing habitual responses that alienate others, it is possible to resolve differences peacefully. NVC avoids making people defend themselves from value-laden judgments, it employs clear requests in place of demands, and it allows everyone to have their needs acknowledged and valued without coercion, fear of retribution, or loss of self-esteem.
