Nonviolent Communication Nonviolent Communication (abbreviated NVC, also called Compassionate Communication or Collaborative Communication) is a communication process developed by Marshall Rosenberg beginning in the 1960s. It focuses on three aspects of communication: self-empathy (defined as a deep and compassionate awareness of one's own inner experience), empathy (understanding and sharing an emotion expressed by another), and honest self-expression (defined as expressing oneself authentically in a way that is likely to inspire compassion in others). NVC is based on the idea that all human beings have the capacity for compassion and only resort to violence or behavior that harms others when they don't recognize more effective strategies for meeting needs. Habits of thinking and speaking that lead to the use of violence (psychological and physical) are learned through culture. Applications History and development NVC Theory Overview

Befriending Ourselves - Self-empathy Self-Empathy What is Self-Empathy? When you think of empathy, you probably think of putting yourself in someone else's shoes, imagining what their life is like.

Why I Stayed: A Letter to my Ex. You know what really bothers me, after all this time and even after your death? It’s the question everyone still asks—my now-husband, my parents, my friends, my therapist: why did you stay? It’s the question everyone in an abusive relationship is constantly asked. How Not Talking About Conflict Could Help a Marriage Last It’s a familiar mantra that marriage counselors rely upon in advising their couples — talk about conflicts and try to resolve them, rather than letting suppressed feelings fester until they poison a relationship beyond repair.
