Non-Violent English

Because English is now the common, uniting language of the European Union and most countries in the world, it is important to use English in a healthy, constructive way. This means using English in a way which will:

- Facilitate conflict prevention and peaceful conflict resolution.

- Increase understanding, empathy, caring and mutual respect.

Below are links to the writing of S. P. Hein and others which can be used to form the base of a training program we propose to call "Non-Violent English"

Non-Violent English can be described as:

A healther way of listening and speaking which is based on the natural relationship between our feelings and our needs -- with particular importance to our emotional needs. These include the emotional needs to feel accepted, cared about, appreciated, respected, safe, understood, valued. (See more emotional needs.)
