It is highly recommended that participants have some literacy in NVC that they can build upon during the weekend. Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s book “Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life” is a great place to start.
Originally developed by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, NVC has grown worldwide with hundreds of certified and other trainers bringing NVC to practice groups of individuals, businesses, classrooms and other institutions. More information about NVC can be found at: http://www.cnvc.org/learn/nvc-foundations
