Nonviolent Communication


Definition: Nonviolent Communication is a communication and conflict resolution method developed by Marshall Rosenberg to communicate in a respectful, yet powerful way with other people, avoiding several traps in communication due to clashing ego's and/or making the other person feel he or she is been treated unfairly or disrespectfully.
The NVC method has 4 steps:
1. Observe and identify the situation without evaluating or judging
2. Identify the feeling inside of yourself
3. Identify your need or desire
4. Formulate a request
The background of NVC is each person is responsible for his own life, and one cannot force others to feel, think or act the way one wishes.
