Changes to the account registration system


Our website is undergoing a major upgrade, which will make many of the resources mentioned on this page available without registering for an account. Until the new site is launched, the self-registration of new accounts has been suspended. The text below the line has not been altered but does not reflect the changes that will be made with the new site set-up. Updates to this information are forthcoming.

Existing accounts will still be fully active. 

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.

What you get when you sign in. (Note: This applies to existing accounts only, new account registration has been suspended pending the launch of our new website.)

These messages can be read online, and are sent to the recipients as an email as well.

This is a great way to have a conversation with a group of people, much easier to manage than using e-mail.
