Product Description

Product Description

You’re about to have an uncomfortable meeting with your boss. The principal just called about your middle-schooler. You had a fight with your partner and it’s an hour before bed. You know your next move will go a long way toward defining your relationships with these individuals. So what do you do?

We all find ourselves in situations similar to these, and too often resort to the same old patterns of behavior—defending our need to be right, refusing to really listen, speaking cruelly out of anger and frustration, or worse. But there is another way. Living Nonviolent Communication gives you practical training in applying Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s renowned process in the areas he has most often been asked for counsel:

  • Conflict resolution
  • Working with anger
  • Spiritual practice
  • Healing and reconciliation
  • Loving relationships
  • Raising children

Nonviolent Communication has flourished for four decades across 35 countries for a simple reason: it works. Now you can learn to activate its healing and transformational potential, with Living Nonviolent Communication.

This book does not contain any new material from Marshall Rosenberg,

Rather it is a compilation of the 6 short books:
We can work it out
Being me, loving you
Getting past the pain between us
The Surprising Purpose of Anger
Raising Children Compassionately
Practical Spirituality

If you have some or most of these books (I had 4) this probably isn't a grab unless you have people you want to pass them onto.

I would also prefer it hadn't excluded one of these short books entitled:
" The Heart of Social Change: How to Make a Difference in Your World. "
and merged into the child rearing section "Teaching Children Compassionately: How Students and Teachers Can Succeed with Mutual Understanding (Nonviolent Communication Guides)"
as I do not own those two, they seemed an unnecessary ommission for this compilation

If you don't have many or any of the books in this compilation then this is a great grab to suppliment Nonviolent Communication as it is full of transcriptions of role-plays where you can see the method at work. Of course the best way to learn NVC is to practice it yourself but these conversations can help you learn how.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it 17 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A wonderful introduction to NVC giving many practical examples of how it had been applied in some very difficult situations. I love the compassionate basis of this work, both to ourselves and others. It is a practise that teaches how to listen deeply to ourselves and others thus building a way of connection and communication that honours, respects and looks for solutions. I highly recommend it

4.0 out of 5 stars A New Way of Living 26 Jun 2012
By Lamisha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Living Nonviolent Communication is more than a guide to good communication. It is a guide to a new way of living that can heal and transform relationships of all types. Author and clinical psychologist, Marshall Rosenberg, has created a process of communication that brings practitioners out of the reactions of their past and into the present moment so they may respond to the current situation in a peaceful way. Nonviolent communication is a method that suggests deciphering the needs behind any reaction or emotion and responding empathically, so ideally all parties involved in any type of dispute may find peace. This book not only outlines the process of nonviolent communication, but also provides readers with role playing examples in areas such as healing and reconciliation, loving relationships, and working with anger, so they may further understand how it can be used in a real conversation.

While reading this book I had several "aha" moments where everything seemed to click and I could see how I can apply this in my everyday life. I did struggle with the some of the language in the role-playing as it felt somewhat scripted and unnatural, but I can certainly see the benefits of practicing this type of communication. In a world where war is considered a solution to conflict and violence seems to be a way of life for some, nonviolent communication is greatly needed. I invite readers to explore an alternative to our traditional conflict resolution methods in Living Nonviolent Communication

4.0 out of 5 stars Not original, but still worth buying. 2 Aug 2012
By mac maven - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent stories, though they seem to be copied from the earlier published NVC booklets. Though if someone hadn't already purchased the booklets, this is likely a better value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tools for a therapist, mediator, parent, facilitator 22 April 2014
By Deborah Knittel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
All of Rosenberg's short but pithy books present invaluable tools for helping others (and ourselves) resolve conflicts in a transformative way. As a life coach, leadership trainer, consultant and mediator, I have often seen clients hoping for more than just a compromise or reluctant agreement to end hostilities.Rosenberg's books give step by step procedures to guide one through helping others reach a safe place where each participant can know s/he is being heard and understood and to develop the same skill to hear and understand and respect others. That first step is followed by learning how to value what others are feeling, to know and value what oneself is feeling and to work together from that space to transform the conversation into one of respect and healing. The key is to create an emotionally safe place for that to happen. In this book there are tools to help any reader learn how to present oneself in a way that is not threatening and does allow one to open up to hearing and understanding others with the goal of making peace and being peace and to assist others in reaching that place as well. An invaluable tool!

Rosenberg's ideas about communication are radical and wonderful and when I apply them, my relationships are far more loving and sweet.
