In Nonviolent communication, Marshall Rosenberg describes a way of communicating with empathy and focus on personal needs, and without judgement.
Nonviolent means to bring out the best in yourself by letting the way you communicate be led by love, respect, understanding, appreciation, compassion and care, instead of letting it be led by egocentrics, greed, prejudices and aggression.
At the core of Nonviolent communication lies the practice of making OBSERVATIONS free from judgment or evaluation. It also emphasizes the importance of acknowledging and expressing EMOTIONS without resorting to blame or criticism. Then, by recognizing shared NEEDs, individuals can work collaboratively towards finding solutions that address the concerns of all parties involved. And finally, nonviolent communication encourages to make clear and positive REQUESTS that stem from identified needs.
