Dr. Marshall B. Rosenberg, born in 1934, is the creator of a method of communication called "Nonviolent Communication" (NVC) and director of educational services for the Center for Nonviolent Communication, an international non-profit organization.

In 1961, Dr. Rosenberg received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Wisconsin and in 1966 was awarded Diplomate status in clinical psychology from the American Board of Examiners in Professional Psychology.


The Center for Nonviolent Communication emerged out of work he was doing with civil rights activists in the early 1960s. During this period he provided mediation and communication skills training to communities working to desegregate schools and other public institutions.

He worked with educators, managers, mental health and health care providers, lawyers, military officers, prisoners, police and prison officials, clergy, government officials and individual families.
