The PPLP is a nine-month program, co-lead by Ingrid Bauer (Certified Trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication - CNVC) and Stephanie Bachmann Mattei, (CNVC Certified Trainer and CNVC Assessor) aimed at nurturing and developing leaders who are committed to spreading Nonviolent Communication (NVC) to parents, teachers and youth-serving professionals in their communities, especially in those regions where there are no NVC trainers.
Through a variety of program components, the PPLP hopes to provide these leaders the experience, skills and support they need to successfully support other parents who want to learn and practice NVC in their families as well as professionals working with youth.
The PPLP begins in October 2017 and runs through June 2018, and is structured as a long-distance program in order to support participation by lay leaders throughout the world. The components of the program include regularly scheduled teleclasses, weekly study suggestions, buddy relationships, and individualized tele-support.
We anticipate that most participants will be parents, but non-parents who want to focus primarily on sharing NVC with parents, teachers, and people working with children, are warmly welcome.
