CNVC Certified Trainer from Saltspring Island, British Columbia, Canada

CNVC Certified Trainer from Saltspring Island, British Columbia, Canada

Ingrid Bauer has been teaching and writing extensively about compassionate parenting since 1997. When she discovered Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in 2000, she was thrilled to find a practice that supported her desire to live compassion and grow world peace from the roots by addressing how we raise and interact with children, and how we practice peace in creating communities that nourish and care for each individual. For this reason, and as a mother of four children aged 2 to 24 years, she is dedicated to sharing NVC with parents and families. Much of her work addresses this arena.

Ingrid is a CNVC Certified Trainer and a graduate of the BayNVC Leadership Program. Since 2006, she has been leading the Parent Peer Leadership Program, part of the joint CNVC and BayNVC Peaceful Families, Peaceful World Project, initially created by Inbal Kashtan. She offers workshops, telecourses, retreats and family camps internationally, with a special focus on parenting and leadership training. She also offers private counseling and parent coaching. Ingrid lives with her family on Saltspring Island on Canada’s west coast.

Latest NVC Library Resources with Ingrid Bauer

Ingrid shares about the three primary keys of parenting & NVC, two child rearing models, developmental needs for children and how to foster secure attachment.


This 3-part telecourse recording explores what it means to practice “power with” parenting with babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Ingrid has been teaching and writing about very young children for a decade and has a special passion for this age range.


As parents, we often face challenging situations on a daily basis and struggle to create what we most long for. In this 6 session telecourse recording, you will learn how Nonviolent Communication can support a family culture where cooperation, trust, and peace are nurtured, and children and parents can flourish together.


Ingrid guides parents to navigate everyday parenting challenges using the NVC model, such as the behavior of a frustrated child, a messy room, transition times and a child who collapses when things don't work out as she had hoped.
