Speak Peace in a World of Conflict: What You Say Next Will Change Your World

by Marshall B. Rosenberg

Words have the power to create profound healing -- or incredible suffering -- and yet even with the best intentions it can be difficult to build harmony and trust through speech. This pioneering text presents a four-part model for immediately connecting words with peace and well-being in relationships. Applying the principles of Nonviolent Communication to conversation, the book seeks to answer the two central questions of How can we express what's alive in us? and How can we make life more wonderful? Chapters discuss using natural empathy to ease stressful situations and beat fear, thus avoiding dehumanising communication patterns, and instead seeing through the eyes of others to foster understanding. Examples of applications in education, correctional facilities, parenting, and the business world are given. This instructive guide teaches users of all types that it is possible to meet their needs and the needs of others in a compassionate manner, beginning with the very first words they use.

The Surprising Purpose of Anger: Beyond Anger Management: Finding the Gift

by Marshall B. Rosenberg

You can feel it when it hits you. Your face flushes and your vision narrows. Your heartbeat increases as judgmental thoughts flood your mind. Your anger has been triggered, and you are about to say or do something that will likely make it worse. You have an alternative. By practising the Non-violent Communication (NVC) process you can use that anger to serve a specific, life-enriching purpose. It tells you that you're disconnected from what you value and that your needs are not being met. Rather than managing your anger by suppressing your feelings or blasting someone with your judgements, Marshall Rosenberg shows you how to use anger to discover what you need, and then how to meet your needs in constructive ways. This book will help you apply these four key truths: People or events may spark your anger but your own judgements are its cause; Judging others as 'wrong' prevents you from connecting with your unmet needs; Getting clear about your needs helps you identify solutions satisfying to everyone; Creating strategies focused on meeting your needs transforms anger into positive actions.
