Non Violent Communication: a language of life

Marshall Rosenberg created Nonviolent Communication (http://www.cnvc.org). Dr Rosenberg talks about theories of human evolution which sought to return to a more natural way - one where no-one advances at the expense of another.

With Non Violent Communication, people can connect to what is most alive in them on a heart level. There is no judgement, no good nor bad, no right nor wrong. We come to a deeper understanding of each others needs.

I want to share this small video with you because I think NVC is closely linked to the SALT approach. As, facilitators we can definitely incorporate some of Marshall's techniques in helping community members understand each other better and connect on a heart level rather than judging...

Marchall proposes a 4 step process to communicate in a compassionate way, when we feel our needs are not being met...
1. Express the facts: what happened objectively
2. What did you feel when this happened (take responsibility of your feelings)
3. What need of yours were not being met
4. Express a concrete request to improve the situation

Ex: When I found a pile of dirty dishes in the kitchen, I felt frustrated and angry, because I have a need to live in a clean environment. Can you do the dishes within the same day as you use them?

Hope this is useful!
