Program 1

NVC training is helping prevent and resolve conflict in schools, businesses, healthcare centers, prisons, community groups and families. In the former Yugoslavia, the CNVC team has trained thousands of teachers and students and developed curriculum materials for use with children from kindergarten through high school. There are currently five Israeli and four Palestinian schools based on NVC principles, and hundreds of kindergartens in Israel where NVC has been introduced, building the groundwork for long term peace. (For a time, the head of the Israeli national commission to prevent violence in the schools was a CNVC Certified Trainer and former principal of one of these schools.) NVC schools are also operating in Sweden, Serbia, and the U.S. Marshall Rosenberg's book, NONVIOLENT COMMUNICATION: A LANGUAGE OF COMPASSION (Puddle Dancer Press, 1999) has attracted a surge of attention and requests for training from the educational community and other groups. Marshall addressed 1,500 Montessori teachers at their 1999 annual convention and CNVC trainers were invited to present workshops at their 2000 convention. Marshall's book has been translated into Dutch, Danish, French, German, Lithuanian, Finnish and Spanish and is in the process of being translated into Hungarian, Serbian, Italian, and Urdu. Marshall’s new book, LIFE SERVING EDUCATION, will soon be published by PuddleDancer Press. NVC programs are expanding rapidly in Latin America in Colombia, Mexico, Argentina and Brazil; in Africa in Nigeria, South Africa, and Burundi; in Eastern Europe in Hungary, Poland, and several other countries; and in various countries in South Asia including India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. NVC has been introduced to inmates and staff in prisons in Sweden and, in the US, in California, Texas, and Washington. In healthcare centers in the US, France, Sweden, the UK and elsewhere, medical personnel are using NVC to learn to listen empathically to their patients and to create support teams for themselves to deal with the emotional stress of their work. NVC training has been introduced in the war-torn areas of Rwanda and Burundi, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, Bosnia & Herzegovina, and Croatia.
