Nonviolent communication

Underlying all human actions are needs that people are seeking to meet, and understanding and acknowledging these needs can create a shared basis for connection, cooperation, and more globally – peace.

Four Assumptions:
All human beings share the same needs.
All actions are attempts to meet needs.
Feelings point to needs being met or unmet.
Most conflicts arise from miscommunications about human needs.

The language of NVC includes two parts: honestly expressing ourselves to others, and empathically hearing others.

Actions are a done to meet needs
Negative feelings arise from unmet need and positive feelings arise from met needs
