Dr. Marshall B. Rosenberg, PhD (1934-2015) founded the Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) in the early 60s and taught NVC in the United States and 60+ countries around the world for more than four decades. His vision was to create a world where individuals, groups and organizations can collaborate peacefully to enable social change through compassionate, nonviolent communication. We're fortunate that some training sessions have been recorded over the years and posted to YouTube for all of us to benefit from. We've assembled a playlist of YouTube videos featuring Dr. Rosenberg leading workshops. Enjoy!
If I'm using Nonviolent Communication I never, never, never hear what somebody thinks about me. Never hear what somebody thinks about you, you'll live longer. You'll enjoy life more. Hear the truth. The truth is that when somebody's telling you what's wrong with you, the truth is they have a need that isn't getting met. Hear that they're in pain. Don't hear the analysis.
