Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a communication process
developed by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg which creates a vision of
the world in which everyone's needs are met peacefully through
relationships guided by compassion. The Oregon Network for
Compassionate Communication (ORNCC) promotes the growth and
practice of NVC in Oregon and southwest Washington.
NVC can help to:
- Improve communication among family members of all ages.
- Create productive & cooperative ways of working among employees, staff & managers
- Translate wants & desires into requests that are clear, compassionate, direct & doable
- Cultivate a kinder, more authentic connection with yourself and others
- Re-establish trust and honesty in intimate relationships
