In these polarized times, words really matter. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) was created by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg. NVC can help find common ground with anyone, anywhere and anytime in diverse situations: intimate relationships, families, schools, organizations and institutions, therapy and counseling, diplomatic and business negotiations, disputes and conflicts of any nature. Nonviolent Communication shows us a way of being very honest, without any criticism, insults, or put-downs, and without any intellectual diagnosis implying wrongness. ? Marshall B. Rosenberg, PhD.
