Non Violent Communication Support for ADHD

Nonviolent Communication, or NVC, offers a cultural shift that can help us think and relate with compassion. Relating to ourselves and others from the understanding of universal human needs or values, enables us to let go of blame and shame, and reconnect with our innate ability to empathize with ourselves and others. By doing so, we can communicate more openly and genuinely, and deepen our understanding of those around us.


Being present is a precious gift, and NVC helps us to appreciate and utilize this gift. This approach teaches us to communicate with respect for ourselves and others, ensuring that all voices are heard and valued. It also promotes emotional liberation, greater self-responsibility for our needs, and honest and compassionate communication.

Developed by Marshall Rosenberg in the early 1960s, NVC has brought more compassionate communication to various settings,

including schools, health care, prisons, mediations, parent-child conflicts, and couples.
