Stephanie Bachmann Mattei is a certified trainer in Nonviolent Communication and assessor, living in the USA. She is a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction certified teacher with the Center for Mindfulness at the University of California, San Diego, and an affiliated teacher with the Right Use of PowerTM Institute. She holds a research degree in philosophy from the Università Degli Studi di Firenze, Italy. Stephanie is the co-author of  The Heart of Nonviolent Communication: 25 Keys from Separation to Connection

Having grown up across multiple cultures, Stephanie loves to travel the globe and share her understanding of Nonviolent Communication as a practice that informs the intra-personal, inter-personal and systemic levels of human experience. She weaves mindfulness into all her teachings, and also offers Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction courses as a path to cultivate the natural human capacity for compassionate presence. Stephanie’s organizational and leadership trainings in Right Use of PowerTM raise awareness of the power dynamics intrinsic in all relationships and share a heartfelt approach to power. The mindful use of collaborative power can transform domination systems with intentional care not to reproduce them unconsciously.

Stephanie is deeply committed to promoting social change by sharing the applications of Nonviolent Communication in parenting and education. Being the mother of two biological children and one adopted child from the Global Majority (African American) has deeply informed her embodied understanding of the experience of people impacted by racism/bias. Diversity, equity, belonging and inclusion start in her inter-racial family.  As an assessor, she is particularly dedicated to serve areas of the world with less access to Nonviolent Communication.

She loves to stroll on Florida beaches, travel back home to Italy with her family, cook Italian meals with her husband, and pet her cats. 

Stephanie is serving on CNVC Board of Directors (Term expires November 2026).

“Being born a human being does not ensure a child will become humane. Humans become humane. The capacity to care, to share, to listen, value and be empathic – to be compassionate – develops from being cared for, shared with, listened to, valued and nurtured. Humane caregiving expresses our capacity to be humane. Inhumane caregiving can decrease or even destroy this capacity." ~ Dr. Bruce Perry”
