What is Compassionate Communication?
Compassionate Communication, also known as Nonviolent Communication, begins by assuming that we are all compassionate by nature and that our unintended and often violent strategies (i.e., blame, shame, and criticism) - whether verbal or physical - are learned behaviors taught and supported by our prevailing culture.
Compassionate Communication also assumes that we all share the same basic human needs, and that each of our actions are a strategy to meet one or more of these needs. People who practice the principles of compassionate communication have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepened connection and peaceful conflict resolution.
Compassionate Communication will provide you with practical tools to:
● Listen so others are really heard
● Transform internal conflicts and judgments of yourself and others
● Get what you want without using demands, guilt or shame
● Hear the needs behind what anyone does or says
