The Purpose of Nonviolent Communication

6

Nonviolent communication is a tool that we can use to resolve conflicts at both the individual and collective levels. By focusing on identifying the needs of individuals and groups instead of the assigning blame for circumstances, nonviolent communication has the potential to heal the wounds most of us feel deep inside us. When we succeed in nonviolent communication, we are able to meet both our own needs and the needs of those we love. We begin to live from a place of “natural giving” which is where true joy and happiness emerges. A sustainable human society will emerge naturally if we focus on identifying and meeting not just the material needs of people but also the emotional needs as well. 

Marshall Rosenberg pioneered the way for the nonviolent communication movement which now has a presence in over 60 countries around the world. 

This video features audio excerpts from one of Rosenberg's 3-hour presentations. Watch the full video in part 2 or via this link

"At the core of all anger is a need that is not being fulfilled." ~ Marshall Rosenberg
