What is Non-Violent Communication?
Compassionate Communication, also called Nonviolent Communication (NVC) offers a powerful approach for extending the values of attachment parenting throughout infancy and beyond. NVC is not just about communication. It's about our developing our internal resources to be the parents we want to be; to show up authentically and compassionately even in tough circumstances; to care more fully for ourselves and for our families; and to experience power and choice in the places that we tend to feel stuck or helpless.
