Video about Nonviolent Communication with Marshall Rosenberg

Marshall Rosenberg (October 6, 1934-February 7, 2015) was an American psychologist, mediator, author and teacher. Starting in the early 1960s he developed Nonviolent Communication (aka NVC), a process for supporting partnership and resolving conflict within people, in relationships, and in society. Born in Canton, Ohio, Rosenberg was raised in Detroit and completed his undergraduate education at the University of Michigan. He passed away at age 80, peacefully and surrounded by family at his home in Albuquerque, after a courageous battle with cancer.

This video features beloved teacher Marshall Rosenberg sharing about his NVC work in the world, through several questions posed by an interviewer.
