Marshall Rosenberg on Big Picture TV

Here are links to three free online streaming video clips of 3 short talks on NVC by Marshall Rosenberg, created by Big Picture TV (I’m not sure what happened to Big Picture TV, so I have linked to these clips via Youtube).

Clip 1 – Nonviolent Communication – Part One (10 mins)


In the first clip of this two-part free online video series, Dr. Marshall Rosenberg talks about how society has suffered under political ‘domination structures’ that emerged about 8,000 years ago. He reflects on the origins of Nonviolent Communication and describes how the process can be used pragmatically in conflict resolution involving religion. To illustrate its effectiveness as a diplomatic tool, he finishes by describing how he helped restore peace in the conflict resolution process between two warring tribes in Nigeria.

Clip 2 – Nonviolent Communication – Part Two (6 mins)

In the second clip of this two-part free online video series, Dr Marshall Rosenberg talks about how we all too often deal with our own shortcomings in ways which ignore our basic human needs. He then goes on to describe how modern medicine can sometimes misdiagnose depression as a chemical imbalance, and explains how such diagnoses seldom look at the internal dialogues we all have that can lead to our feeling depressed.

Clip 3 – Life is Play (4 mins)

In this free online video clip Marshall Rosenberg talks about Teilhard de Chardin’s theories of human evolution and how we can move to a more natural way of being – one where no-one advances at the expense of another. He speaks of his own experiences working with Nonviolent Communication and how enriching the lives of others is the most rewarding work mankind can engage in.
