WHO ARE THE TRAINERS?
Anne Walton, Certified Trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication, first attended a training with Marshall Rosenberg, PhD, in 2005; what she heard there made her heart sing and she committed to learning and sharing the process with others. Anne now teaches NVC across Canada and the US on TV and through in-person trainings in organizations, schools, hospitals, conferences, homeless shelters and adult recovery programs. She celebrates the enormous shift in her ability to connect with herself and others which NVC has inspired. As a facilitator, Anne blends her warmth, authenticity and sense of humor to create a learning environment which is fun, energizing and inspiring.

Stephanie Bachmann Mattei was born and raised in Florence, Italy, where she earned her Bachelor in Languages and a Ph.D. in Philosophy. Stephanie moved to the USA in 1993, when she married her beloved husband, who is also from Italy. Together they are parenting their three self-educated children (biological and adopted).
Stephanie’s core intertwined themes in life are: spirituality, parenting and healing.
Stephanie, a certified trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication, is passionate to share her understanding of NVC as a process to empower oneself and others to celebrate the humanity in one’s own being, and to encounter the humanity in the other person.
In the words of Dr. Bruce Perry, “Being born human does not ensure being humane.” NVC offers transformational processes to support the journey from human to humane by providing clear tools for healing and reconciliation of warring parts within our psyche, of emerging into our wholeness, to consistently re-connect with our authenticity, and to practice the gift of mindful and compassionate presence for ourselves and others.
Stephanie loves tying NVC with mindfulness-based neuroscience to support self-understanding, healing and wholeness.
Stephanie also co-leads the Parent Peer Leadership Program (PPLP) -a program of the Peaceful Families Peaceful World Project of the International Center for Nonviolent Communication and BayNVC.
