Nonviolent Communication

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) provides a foundation for engaging with your world powerfully, compassionately, authentically, and with clarity. It builds capacity for personal and
organizational development, social change, community peace building and conflict transformation.

NVC offers an understanding and awareness, a set of skills, and a way of communicating that is
rooted in the idea that all people have the same human needs, and that all of our actions and judgments are attempts to meet those needs.

As we focus on building connection between differing groups and in conflict situations, NVC helps us learn to express ourselves in language that connects us to ourselves and others, and to listen to the underlying values or needs which are important to all of us, even when we express ourselves in difficult or hostile ways.

NVC is a powerful tool for reaching win-win resolutions in organizational and community conflicts and for transforming conflicts between groups and societies. It is being used worldwide by communities and organizations, activists, leaders, parents, educators, doctors, social workers, managers and others to improve their work and home life and bring about the changes they want to see in the world.
