Non-Violent Communication Course

Course Materials for Compassionate (or Non-Violent) Communication. 

The intent and content of this course was developed, practiced and taught by Marshall Roseberg.  We offer this course free of charge as a part of our mission to bring healing to a troubled world.  We can each act within our own locus of control and take positive steps to help peace by becoming more compassionate human beings.

The video/audio clips shown during the course sessions cannot be shared publicly but we are making available supplemental links for additional exposure to the topic being covered.
