    So there's actually a way to communicate with people without the use of baseball bats and hammers? Sometimes they are useful tools to convey certain feelings.

      You're disagreeing with me. That is literal violence because you are making me hear ideas or perspectives that i disagree with our don't want to believe could be true. It sounds like you need this course.

            @spillmill: Pretty sure it's a straw man being used to mock sensitive / empathetic people.

            There might be some small number of people who seriously claim to be offended by hearing an opinion differing to their own, but they are vastly outnumbered by the number of people who mock the concept of being offended…

            • +4 votes

              @abb: I reckon sensitivity to offense is a mental illness that the media is capitalising on

              They're constantly writing articles about something that might offend then adding opinions from people who are offended, people who think that people who are offended by that thing are stupid, etc.

        I don’t need this course. And you telling me I need this course proves that you actually need this course.

    It's free, not necessarily funded from taxes, so what's the trick? You're giving away your personal data and they sell it to companies? Or just an old-fashioned cult opportunity? (JK, but for reals)

    When they say 'non-violent communication', do they mean;
    communicating with words instead of fists?
    Or;
    are they implying the sociological concept that words can themselves be 'violent'?

    • +6 votes

      I suspect it’s somewhere in between the two, such as communicating without yelling and throwing a tantrum like a child?

    •  

      More the second. That styles, and content, of communication can inflict hurt.

      The way Rosenberg defines violence is any communication that would attempt to remove or degrade another persons needs. He views all humans as sharing roughly the same feelings and needs, at our core. Its a way of connecting on a level that we can all relate so we can avoid judgements, criticisms and 'retributive justice' systems.

      He has successfully resolved many bloody conflicts involving near genocidal clans and also in more moderate settings for relationships. Even ones spanning decades.

      Its worth paying attention to in depth:

      I assume it means cleansing your speech patterns. Instead of punching down on people, or slapping people about with out-dated colloqualisms (which can be pure suicide in a corporate context), it instead focusses on finding less-crazy ways of discussing really serious topics. You'd have to be a bit brain dead not to pick up on this, in my opinion, but you know what happens when an army of people suddenly arrives on your doorstep. You can feel like you're being stalked and buried under a mountain of rules and procedures.

        Honestly, so much of online communication is degrading and with no other intent than to achieve a “gotcha” that empathy should be a required course before anyone is allowed to touch a computer.

                @prmyab: Just because Trump didn't take a pay check doesn't mean he and his family have not gained wealth due to the position. You'd need to look at their financial statements but my guess is that he simply choose to take his 'pay' via indirect means.

          • +1 vote

            @ttacx: A lot of his meetings were held at his properties and many donations received along the way. He didn't need to receive a wage as the Trump org invoiced the US government for each of the 280 + visits he made to his own resorts.

    This is superb violence should be reserved for the physical realm and not the verbal !

    As someone who frequently engages in violent communication would recommend changing it up a bit with NVC
