Compassionate, Nonviolent Communication
Community Peacebuilding activities and strategies encompass a vast number of practices that bring together youth, adults, governments, organizations and schools to help cultivate peace and healing in local communities. There are many exciting and effective fields of work in this arena.
Compassionate, Nonviolent Communication (also called Collaborative Communication) focuses on three aspects of communication: self-empathy (defined as a deep and compassionate awareness of one’s own inner experience), empathy (defined as listening to another with deep compassion), and honest self-expression (defined as expressing oneself authentically in a way that is likely to inspire compassion in others).
