The Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) is the steward of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) as founded by Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D.

We teach and certify trainers around the world to share the language of NVC in effort to create a world where everyone's needs matter and people have the tools to respond to conflicts skillfully and peacefully.

Empathy in action

There's a lot of talking going on, often divisive and violent. How many of us experience conversations with the heart of understanding, empathy, and transformation? At CVNC, we believe every conversation counts. Explore all the ways you can contribute to empathy in action.
