Phoenix NVC Learning and Practice Group

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a communication framework developed by psychologist Marshall Rosenberg, PhD. The NVC framework provides a set of communication tools that enable us to achieve:

— A habit of responding rather than reacting

– Greater levels of connection and mutual understanding

– Clarity when we experience anger, resentment, fear, etc

– A state of openness, possibility

We are a group committed to learning and practicing Nonviolent Communication together. Each meetup will consist of practical exercises focused on a specific topic.
