What is Compassionate Communication?

  • A four step process to communicate and connect more effectively with one another
  • Developed by Psychologist Marshall Rosenberg (* 6 Oct. 1934, † 7 Feb 2015), founder of the Center for Non-Violent Communication
  • Compassionate Communication is a synonym for the term Non-violent Communication
  • Compassionate Communication is like a language that needs to be trained and practised in order to be internalised as an attitude of empathy and mutual respect 
  • An approach to support people to remain connected with oneself and others, especially but not only in challenging situations.
  • A way to prevent the counterpart from becoming defensive and going into resistance or counter attack.
