Introduction to NVC

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is sometimes referred to as “compassionate communication”, or “a language of life”. It is a practical, learnable process whose purpose is to create a deeper quality of connection between ourselves and others in order to meet everyone’s needs peacefully and effectively. Beyond inter-personal dialogue, it has many applications in Collaborative Decision Making, Inclusive Facilitation and Mediation.

NVC guides us to reframe how we express ourselves and how we hear others. It supports individuals in getting what they most want without betraying their integrity or hurting other people. It has a profoundly positive effect on relationships, working and living environments and capacity for social action.
