Nonviolent Communication — a vision of humanity. Marshall Rosenberg. Marshall Rosenberg , the American psychologist that founded, taught and spread Nonviolent Communication NVC worldwide, said he did not invent something new, but only gathered existing wisdom and put it into a newly structured frame. Through these experiences he developed a "kind of awareness of suffering — why do people do this — and particularly, why does it have to happen to me?
Rosenberg taken from www. What is Nonviolent Communication. The benefits of using it? Essentially, Nonviolent Communication is a way of thinking and speaking that sustains with compassion the life energy in us, between us and for all of us in society, in nature and in the world.
As a thinking way, it proposes to discover, understand and put in to action these underlying principles about human nature:. All human beings share the same needs and the needs are sources of life, vitality and humanity. We try to meet our needs as we can, in our best possible way, in every moment, through every action we do or we do not do.
All kinds of violence are the tragic expression of unmet needs. All our needs can be met in peaceful ways for which there are many strategies. Some ways of thinking and speaking create blockages in communication and prevent our access to very important needs and hence to the sources of inner vitality and power. Our feelings result from our needs, whether they are met or unmet. Every person has rich inner resources and receiving empathy from others can help to access these internal resources.
The natural tendencies of human beings are to give and to receive empathically, to serve life, to contribute to the well-being of self and to the well-being of others. Human beings have the free will; we are not responsible for all that happens to us, but we can choose how we respond to what happens. These underlying principles guide the process of speaking and the 4 steps technique.
For every step, there are important distinctions to understand and practice, in order to be more accurate and present in the communication. Examples of distinctions:. In other words, when we look inside us and when we talk with ourselves or with others, it is more probable to have a good and life-enriching communication if we concentrate on what are the observed facts and the triggers, the feelings, the important values needs and what concrete actions and strategies we can ask in order to meet the needs.
This process can be used in three directions:. In our inner dialogue: we bring awareness inside: about the triggers, the emotional reactions, the needs and the strategies we could use to meet our needs. In expressing ourselves when talking to others: we speak authentically about our feelings and needs and offer our truth without blaming or trying to manipulate others.
In listening to others: we receive with empathy what others say, connecting with their feelings and needs and being curious about how we could contribute to their life. In conclusion, this language of feelings and needs and this care for taking the own responsibility and for requesting, create more possibilities for understanding and finding solutions to conflicts.
NVC and peace. Marshall Rosenberg became more than a psychologist with a humanistic view and practice, he chose to quit his private practice in order to spread NVC. He crossed his country and other continents, worked with people in various environments, taught NVC in a playful and respectful manner, mediated, opened minds and hearts in many difficult contexts: schools where segregation was still a challenge, within prisons, in organizations in conflicts, war-zones as Israel, Palestine, Ireland, Russia, Rwanda, Burundi, Nigeria, Serbia, Croatia.
He was a peacemaker and he was awarded several prizes for his work. Also, people that are not certified but passionate about NVC and committed to keep the guidelines from CNVC can share their knowledge, passion and hopes for a peaceful world.
In Romania, there are in present three certified trainers and three recommended to be certified soon, as well as a growing community of people interested in spreading NVC. NVC in present. It organizes every year several International Intensive Trainings IIT — these are 9-day residential and experiential workshops for developing fluency in Nonviolent Communication.
Like a foreign language, NVC is most easily learned when through immers ion in an environment where that language is spoken. This kind of immersion happens at IIT where participants from all over the world spend time in community, together.
Why is NVC importan t in our time? From my point of view, NVC can help at the individual or personal level, but also at the social level. Understanding, empathy, connection, joy, and courage in individuals influence the atmosphere in the societies we live. We all share a strong and deep need both to belong and to contribute, and we all need skills to overcome systemic blockages toward doing so, especially in these times of loneliness, insecure future and alienation from nature and from our fellow human beings.

Nonviolent Communication abbreviated NVC , also called Compassionate Communication or Collaborative Communication is an approach to nonviolent living developed by Marshall Rosenberg beginning in the s. NVC is based on the assumption that all human beings have capacity for compassion and empathy and that people only resort to violence or behavior harmful to others when they do not recognize more effective strategies for meeting needs. NVC theory supposes that all human behavior stems from attempts to meet universal human needs , and that these needs are never in conflict; rather, conflict arises when strategies for meeting needs clash. NVC proposes that people should identify shared needs, which are revealed by the thoughts and feelings surrounding these needs, and then they should collaborate to develop strategies and make requests of each other to meet each other's needs. The goal is interpersonal harmony and learning for future cooperation.
