A Definition of NVC:
The purpose of Nonviolent Communication is to strengthen our ability to inspire compassion from others and to respond compassionately to others and ourselves in order to create a quality of connection with others in which everyone’s needs are equally valued and met through natural giving. This approach to communication emphasizes compassion rather than fear, guilt, shame or coercion as the motivation for action. It is about getting what you want for reasons you will not regret later. With these processes, you can empower yourself to make conscious, responsible choices, so others will hear the way you want to be heard.
