When our communication supports compassionate giving and receiving, happiness replaces violence and grieving!
-Μarshall Rosenberg

Dr. Marshall B. Rosenberg (1934 – 2015) was the founder and director of educational services for THE CENTER FOR NONVIOLENT COMMUNICATION, CNVC 

Nonviolent Communication training evolved from Dr. Rosenberg’s quest to find a way of rapidly disseminating much needed peacemaking skills.  It is seen as a powerful tool for peacefully resolving differences at personal, professional, and political levels. NVC works with such groups as educators, managers, mental health and health care providers, lawyers, military officers, prisoners, police and prison officials, clergy, government officials, and individual families. It is active in war-torn areas and economically disadvantaged countries, offering Nonviolent Communication training to promote reconciliation and peaceful resolution of differences.
