Non-Violent Communication by Marshall B. Rosenberg

The concept of “Non-Violent Communication (NVC)” by Marshall B. Rosenberg improves the communication of couples as well as of many other communication partners (parent-child, siblings, colleagues, friends) with the tool of four steps. The NVC concept helps to de-escalate by observing objectively (1), by becoming aware of one’s own emotions (2) and needs (3) and finally by formulating a realistic request (4). This supports the ability to leave the vicious circle of anger and accusation and step into a healthy cycle of mutual understanding and finding a compromise.
Here, you’ll find a summary of the concept of NVC, giving you a brief overview of its four steps and basic ideas.
