Non-Violent Communication

Nonviolent communication (NVC)  also called compassionate communication and is an approach to non-violent living that was developed by Marshall Rosenberg in the 1960’s. It is based on the idea that all human beings have the capacity for compassion and resort to violence or behavior that hurts themselves and others when they do not recognize more effective strategies. Therapists that specialize in NVC can help people settle disagreements, foster empathy and identify needs within a relationship.
