Operationalize peace in your school system with the Bigbie Method. 

Find out how our breakthrough NVC model can start delivering measurable results in 100 days.

Schools need peace

The Problem

As a result of having suffered one or more traumatic experiences, two thirds of Americans are prone to responding to perceived threats by fighting, flighting (aka fleeing), or freezing in an attempt to achieve safety – even when there’s no actual threat. This Fight-Flight-Freeze response frequently results in behavior ranging from disruptive to dangerous. This is what we are seeing in America’s schools. This is the problem.

The Solution

Connection – the feeling of ease and flow that occurs within yourself and between people when we experience being seen, heard, and valued without judgment – is the antidote for trauma and the secret magic of the Bigbie Method. Connection is a teachable, replicable process that the Bigbie Method teaches to school communities - students and staff - to interrupt the cycle of trauma and create peace in the classroom.  

Why the Bigbie Method works

We bring about systemwide connection through an NVC approach that is mindful, immersive, and deeply practical.

Systemwide Solution

We don’t “target” students. We create a culture of connection where everyone in the system is seen, heard, and valued without judgment.

Lasting Peace

No quick-fixes to drive short-term. Our approach engages the entire system over the course of the entire school year – and beyond.

Measurable Results

We begin each deployment by defining detailed goals and milestones. Our easy-to-understand reporting makes ROI visible.
