how to be listed as a supporter – create profile information |

One of our goals with this web site is to create and foster NVC community, both globally and locally. Around the world, people have found that having a local community provides support and connection for the members of that community and acts as a magnet to attract those who want to learn NVC. We also want to connect you to people all over the world who share your NVC interests.

When you create an account and sign into the site you will find a new set of menus with resources and information about NVC and the Center for Nonviolent Communication. You will also have the option to tell the public about yourself and your interest in NVC, provide contact information and identify the topics of NVC  most interesting to you. You can also choose to present yourself as a supporter of NVC and select information you want to share with the world about yourself.

This document will show you what we have inside the web site available when you create an account, and how to get the most out of your user account.
