Find out how our Proven Process of Trauma-Informed Training can start delivering measurable results in 100 days.




We believe schools need peace.

The Problem

As a result of having suffered one or more traumatic experiences (ACEs – Adverse Childhood Experience), two-thirds of Americans (according to the ACE Study) 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, in both students and staff, 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. We do this through our proven Trauma-Informed, Social Emotional Learning Curriculum – to interrupt the cycle of trauma and create peace in the classroom. The result? Educators trained in our method have 84% fewer student disciplinary referrals than their colleagues not trained in our method.

Educators who go through The Bigbie Method feel more confident and connected.

After completing just the Intro Training:
experience more connection with colleagues/coworkers.
feel more comfortable approaching difficult conversations.
have applied the strategies and experienced a benefit.
are more apt to proactively resolve a difficult workplace situation.
We opened this year as a brand new school located on the college campus of Tallahassee Community College. We hired a brand new staff and blended students from Gadsden, Leon and Wakulla counties as these are the districts our service district serves.

I knew that I needed to establish a strong bond with teachers and begin cultivating our culture, and how we interact with students. I launched the NVC trainings for teachers this summer with the help of your team.

We have had a very successful year and have less than five disciplinary referrals. NVC works! Thank you so much for all that you’ve taught us and your impact on our school community.

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.
