NVC Nonviolent Communication Sessions in Brighton, Kemptown and Hove
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and also called Compassionate Communication or Collaborative Communication is a therapeutic and communication approach developed by Marshall Rosenberg beginning in the 1960s (book: Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life).
The key concept behind NVC is the perception that human beings have a capacity for compassion and empathy. And because some people don’t have effective communication skills, they resort to violence or harmful behaviours to meet their needs.
NVC suggests that our habitual way of thinking and speaking is culture-specific or learned which can lead to social, psychological and physical harm. NVC theory states that human behaviour is driven by attempts to meet human needs. These needs are universal and never in conflict as such, rather, conflict issues arise when strategies for meeting these needs clash. NVC works by identify shared needs with underlining thoughts and feelings and help to develop strategies to make requests to meet each other’s needs.
NVC works on three levels: within the self, between individuals and within groups or social systems.
NVC assumptions underlying the process are as follows:
• Humans share the same needs
• There are sufficient resources for meeting everyone’s basic needs
• Actions are attempts to meet needs
• Feelings point to needs being met or unmet
• Human have the capacity for compassion
• Human beings enjoy giving
• Humans needs through interdependent relationships
• Humans change
• A choice is internal, and a way to peace is through self-connection
How the NVC Nonviolent Communication process works
NVC is composed of four aspects: observations, feelings, needs and requests.
