NVC in Schools

Below you will find 5 short films “A Culture of Peace in Schools with NVC” based on the idea that conflicts are inevitable and they can also be the foundation for development of social and personal skills if we are able to get closer and focus on the needs behind the conflict. The films are made in collaboration with Filmkompagniet and with the support of the Danish Ministry of Education’s distribution funds. For the films, free educational material has been prepared which you can download here.

Film 1 of 5. Culture of Peace in School with NVC – Behind every action there is a need. Introduction to NVC in schools. We hear a preschool teacher talk about her experience with NVC and how it has changed the social environment in the classroom. We are also introduced to a conflict between two preschool children.

Film 2 of 5. Culture of Peace in School with NVC – From conflict to connection: the four elements of the NVC process. Shows how the teacher resolves the conflict from film 1 using the four principles of Nonviolent Communication (observations, feelings, needs, requests). Scenes from film 1 are expanded upon.

Film 3 of 5. Culture of Peace in School with NVC – Taking responsibility for my own feelings. The scenes from film 1 continue and shows in detail how the flashcards with feelings & needs help the children to describe their feelings and needs in a conflict.

Film 4 of 5. Culture of Peace in School with NVC – Empathy for others, understanding others. See the children trying to guess the feelings and needs of others as the teacher helps them to connect more fully to what needs motivated the people in the conflict and draw further learning from the conflict.

Film 5 of 5. Culture of Peace in School with NVC – From anger to empathy, Mona and Mohammed. Mohammed from the 6th grade and the teacher Mona tell us how their conversation about feelings and needs helped them understand anger and find self-empathy.


If you would like to make these films available in your own language please get in touch with me here so that we can make an agreement about the process of translation, production and distribution of the films in your own language.

Translating them into a new language requires a contract to assure connection and quality.


English subtitles are provided free to translate into your own language, and create soft-embedded subtitles. If you want me to embed the subtitles on the film, I ask that you cover the cost. No other fee is to be paid.

Nepal – Healing and Reconciliation through Nonviolent communication

In December 2014, together with an international team, I offered 7 days of NVC training in “Healing and Reconciliation through Nonviolent Communication” in Nepal, organized by Jeannine Suurmond and the organization Pro Public. The documentary “Raamro Aakha Ma (In the Eyes of the Good)” shows how training in Nonviolent Communication helps both victims and former soldiers heal the trauma of the Civil War.
