Dear friends of NVC,

I hope this finds you well.

I finished my assessor job at the beginning of the year – or maybe just parked it, that remains to be seen. In any case, I have been thinking about what I would like to do instead and have realized how much I love to work internationally. No sooner had this thought matured in me than I registered for the IIT in Germany in September and was invited as a trainer to the IIT in India and Romania. Maybe we will see each other there!

The reason why I am writing to you is to continue to follow this flow. i now also want to take our project „the giraffe’s dream“ into the world.

In 2005, Gundi and I developed a project to bring NVC to kindergartens and preschools. originally, we started very small – in our younger daughter’s kindergarten. Soon other kindergartens became interested and the original project documentation grew into a book for which Marshall Rosenberg gave us a foreword. This book „I want to understand what you really need“ has meanwhile been sold almost 40,000 times in the German-speaking countries and after the expansion in 2020 another 10,000 times. The book has already been translated into Korean, English, Polish, Dutch, partly into Spanish and French. Translations into Bulgarian, Romanian, Japanese and Chinese are currently in progress.

In 2009, we trained the first „giraffe’s dreamer“, as we were no longer able to meet the requests from kindergartens and preschools in the German-speaking region ourselves and wanted to provide long-term support for the institutions. In the 32 multiplier trainings so far (since 2020 also online) we could show about 400 people how to pass on NVC with children and the project „The giraffe’s dream“. Most of the multipliers are (by now) certified NVC trainers, educators, teachers, working with children and parents, therapists, coaches, mediators. Mainly due to this support, the project has probably developed into the largest social change project based on NVC in the kindergarten/pre-school sector worldwide. There are adaptations also in elementary school, crèches, work with mentally handicapped people, at Montessori, Waldorf, Reggio and forest kindergartens, etc.

I would now like to take this concept further into the world and train multipliers who also want to adapt the project to the respective situation and the educational institutions and educational concepts with the standards of the countries.

One adjustment that I would like to make for this and thus try to meet the different financial situation of the target countries is the pricing of the seminar fee. This is based on the average income of the countries as an equivalent to €980 in Germany.
