Photo of Sylvia HaskvitzSylvia Haskvitz lives in Tucson, Arizona, USA and has been a certified trainer since 1989 and one of the original 20 certified trainers. She completed her masters degree in Speech and Communication studies with a focus on interpersonal and intercultural communication. As a communication consultant, coach and trainer, she has brought NVC consciousness to workplaces across the US, coached couples, families and individuals and has worked on many diverse projects including co-facilitating a 9 day NVC training in Israel/Palestine in 2011. She began the first year course in Nonviolent Communication in 1998, recognizing the need for regular practice in community. She co-created the group Compassionate Communication for the Jewish Soul as a way to support healing in the Jewish community. As a nutritionist, she wrote Eat by Choice, Not by Habit, an NVC application to our relationship with food and our bodies. She is new to the assessor role and it is because of her deep desire to support the integrity of the NVC process and its sustainability that she is wanting to play in this role. Her website is eatbychoice.net.

pw021's pictureAn original founder of the BC Network for Compassionate Communication in British Columbia, Canada, Penny has offered trainings in the Nonviolent Communication process to people, organizations and corporate and government groups in North America since 1999. She has offered her services as a CNVC assessor since 2005. She writes, “The practice of NVC is, in my experience, the development of an ongoing, evolving, life-long consciousness of compassionate interplay and outreach in which personal authenticity plays a key role. For without deep personal authenticity, ongoing inner awareness and accountability, empathic presence for others is certainly limited. How can I reach out to others if I am unwilling to reach into myself, unwilling to honour and experience this place of inner knowingness and intuition where life just somehow fits?” Penny views the assessor/certification candidate relationship as a mutual collaboration to support the evolution of NVC consciousness in the world.

Trainer Candidate Community Path (TCCP)

kdm143's pictureKathleen works with CNVC trainer candidates through the Trainer Candidate Community Path (TCCP) Click here for details. In conjunction with the CNVC certification process, the TCCP program is for CNVC trainer candidates who would like to walk the certification path in community, with a clear structure (designed by individual candidates and Kathleen, that would include individual work, work with two other certified trainers and the TCCP community), and who are interested in the areas of building sustainable community and restorative justice. The program involves meeting four weekends a year as a community and co-leading trainings with Kathleen and/or other certified trainers in prison or other venues to be mutually decided upon. For more information about Kathleen visit her web site www.StrengthofConnection.com.

TCCP is  one of the prototypes for the new CNVC organization's Recognized Role weaves (a group supporting living and sharing of NVC in the role of Certified Trainer or soon to be NVC Ambassador).

During CNVC's transition to a new self-managed collaborative organization, the Trainer Candidate Community Path (TCCP)  is focusing on infrastructure that we hope will more fully support NVC trainer candidates and enthusiasts.  During this period of transition TCCP is will not be taking any new candidates.  Our hope is to be able to begin the process of bringing in new members at the end of March 2017.  When there are openings in the TCCP, Kathleen will contact those on the wait list who are interested to explore if the TCCP program is a good match as a strategy for certification.

Stephanie Bachmann Mattei e' nata e cresciuta, in Italia, a Firenze, dove ha studiato lingue e si e' laureata Cum Laude in Filosofia. Nel 1993 si e’ trasferita negli Stati Uniti. Attualmente risiede in Florida, assieme a suo marito, anch’egli italiano, ed ai loro tre figli. Stephanie ha incontrato Marshall nel 2002 e, qualche mese dopo, la formatrice certificata Inbal Kashtan, la quale le ha trasmesso con tutto il cuore l’arte di vivere secondo i principi fondamentali della Comunicazione Nonviolenta (CNV) e le relative applicazioni pratiche, sia nell'ambito delle relazioni familiari che nei rapporti con i bambini. Al fine di offrire il supporto più' completo alla visione di Inbal di diffondere la CNV in famiglie e con operatori che lavorano con i bambini, Stephanie decise di iniziare il percorso di certificazione per Formatori CNV con il Centro Internazionale per la Comunicazione Nonviolenta (CNVC). Tale cammino e' stata un’esperienza estremamente significativa, un'opportunità’ per acquisire nuovi livelli di consapevolezza basata sulla CNV, sotto la calorosa guida di Penny Wassman la quale rivestiva il ruolo di assessor per Stephanie. Ancora oggi, tale percorso offre a Stephanie un'esperienza tangibile di come si possa instaurare una collaborazione paritaria nel rapporto assessor/candidato. Stephanie continua a diffondere il messaggio di Inbal, in qualità’ di formatrice del Parent Peer Leadership Program assieme alla formatrice certificata Ingrid Bauer. Stephanie ha anche lavorato per oltre cinque anni con la NVC Academy, collaborando con svariati formatori certificati e venendo esposta a stili di facilitazione ed insegnamento variegati. Sylvia Haskvitz ha invitato Stephanie a far parte del CALF Program (Candidates Active Learning Forum) un programma specificatamente per candidati iscritti al percorso di certificazione per Formatori CNV con il Centro Internazionale per la Comunicazione Nonviolenta. Nel 2015 Sylvia ha invitato Stephanie a considerare la possibilità di diventare un assessor. Stephanie ha entusiasticamente accolto questo nuovo percorso al fine di dare il suo contributo nella diffusione dei principi della CNV nel mondo in integrita’ con gli insegnamenti di Marshall B. Rosenberg. Lo psichiatra americano, Dr Bruce Perry, afferma che "Nascere umani non garantisce il diventare veramente umani. Gli esseri umani diventano umani. La capacità’ di prendersi cura, di condividere, di ascoltare, di valorizzare e di essere empatici -essere compassionevoli-, si sviluppa col fare esperienza di essere accuditi, accolti, ascoltati, valorizzati ed arricchiti." Per Stephanie la CNV e' un percorso che aiuta questo cammino: dal nascere essere umano al vivere realizzando le qualità' squisitamente umane.

Stephanie Bachmann Mattei was born and raised in Florence, Italy, where she earned the equivalent of a Bachelor in Languages and the Laurea cum Laude in Philosophy. In 1993, she and her husband relocated from Italy to the USA. They currently reside in Florida, Tampa Bay area with their 3 children.

Stephanie first met Marshall in 2002 and, soon after, CNVC Certified Trainer Inbal Kashtan, who wholeheartedly shared with Stephanie the heart and soul of NVC in parenting and family life. It was with the intention of more fully supporting Inbal’s vision of sharing NVC with parents and people working with children that Stephanie decided to pursue CNVC certification. The journey was a delightful experience, nourished by consistent encouragement to stretch and expand her NVC awareness under the loving guidance of Penny Wassman, who served as her assessor. Her journey with Penny still serves as an experiential reference of how partnership may be embodied on the certification path in the relationship between assessor and candidate. Stephanie has continued to bring forth Inbal’s legacy, and together with CNVC Certified Trainer Ingrid Bauer, Stephanie has been co-leading the Parent Peer Leadership Program since 2009.

Stephanie also worked for over 5 years with the NVC Academy collaborating with various CNVC Trainers and being exposed to the richness of different facilitation styles. These connections continue to serve and influence Stephanie's growth and development. Her connection with Sylvia Haskvitz resulted in an invitation to join the CALF Program (Candidates Active Learning Forum) and, a few years later, to consider serving as an assessor. Stephanie enthusiastically embraced this proposal as an opportunity to touch more lives and create more of a ripple effect in her sharing of NVC with the world. Dr. Bruce Perry states that "Being born a human being does not ensure a child will become humane. Humans become humane. The capacity to care, to share, to listen, value and be empathic – to be compassionate – develops from being cared for, shared with, listened to, valued and nurtured.” Stephanie holds NVC as a path to support the very journey from human to human.
