Irmtraud Kauschat
Irmtraud Kauschat works as a medical doctor and has given NVC trainings in different countries, including Serbia/Croatia, Kenya and more recently Israel/Palestine and Ukraine. Irmtraud has expertise in =reconciliation between warring groups like in former Yugoslavia (in 1996 especially with youth from Serbia and Croatia), in Kenya with different communities that had been affected by the post-election violence in 2007/208, (in the Lake Victoria region through hotspots of violence like Eldoret and Nakuru in Rift Valley to a slum in Nairobi) as well as with two tribes from the north that had been at war with each other for about 30 years and most recently with people from Israel/Palestine and Ukraine . When she heard Marshall talk about his experiences in Israel/Palestine and Northern Ireland she was very enthusiastic about the impact NVC could have on people’s lives and her vision was to contribute to peacebuilding in a similar way. This vision has come true. Peace is a very important topic for her since her childhood when she saw ruins in Frankfurt after World War 2 and witnessed the broadcasting of the Auschwitz process in her teenage years, when she was confused getting to know that the very same people who killed Jewish children and parents were described as loving parents themselves. Now she is thrilled of being a trainer for the IIT in Kenya – another vision of her’s - to offer this special experience to the people she has been training and supporting for 10 years by now with NVC. She is a founding member and chairperson of her local circle in Darmstadt as well as of the German speaking network: D-A-CH and served as a member of GCC (NVC Global Community Circle) and coordinator of the EAC (English speaking NVC European. African Circle). From January 2012 till October 2013 she served as a member of the CNVC board. She started her journey of becoming an assessor for CNVC certification in 2015.

“I met Marshall and NVC when I was studying in Ohio State University in 1996 through Maria Mankien, a close friend of mine, who was then the secretary at CNVC. NVC reinforced my studies at the University. I was involved with Paulo Freire and the Sense-Making studies at the time and NVC just gave it all a new form. I fell in love with the process. When I returned to Sri Lanka, I invited Marshall to introduce NVC to Sri Lanka and I introduced it to my teaching at the University. Since then, I have met wonderful NVC people and I wished that the whole world be full of people who lived NVC. I began my journey living NVC with 20 children who had lost their parents in the war in Sri Lanka. It has been a great journey of learning and I am looking forward to continuing the journey, learning with this IIT team.”
