“Nonviolent Communication” Excerpts and Notes:
Author: Marshall B Rosenberg
Protective force is used to PROTECT and EDUCATE when there is:
1. A lack of awareness of the consequences of our actions;
2. An inability to see how our needs may be met without injury to others;
3. The belief that we have the right to punish or hurt others bec...ause they “deserve” it; and
4. Delusional thinking that involves, for example, hearing a voice that instructs us to kill someone.
