Testimonials


"Reflections from a board member on Pikler Intensive Workshop April 13-18, 2015 Arriving on Sunday afternoon I walked into the pre-conference workshop to see all the participants deeply engaged with Bev, Janet, Intisar and Elsa. All seemed so appreciative of the time they had spent over the weekend and eager to learn more."

- Enid Elliot PhD, Chair of Education Committee Pikler USA

"I have had the pleasure of being able to attend all four of the previous Pikler® Intensives that have been held in the United States. I cannot even begin to describe how truly remarkable these trainings are. I am a lifelong learner, and as such, I attend a lot of conferences and trainings."

- Colleen Walling, Caregiver

“The nine days I spent at the Advanced Pikler® Intensive were life-changing! Though I’ve always had a love and respect for children, I gained a new way of seeing them. I learned how to notice, observe and enjoy each child’s unique rhythm. I learned about ‘Why movement is critical to brain development. And much, much more"

- Tracy Epps Johnson, Ph.D.

“It is mystery to me how love can continue to grow. My two granddaughters are testimony to the fact that our capacity to love others is boundless. Both their fathers are my adopted sons and it amazes me that their offspring look just like them. What a blessing for them to finally “see themselves” in the flesh. Pikler® has been extremely important to me as I have learned how to hold my children and to let them go simultaneously.

The balance we all seek is not just physical but also emotional and spiritual. The wisdom of Dr. Pikler and Dr. Tardos has been a healing power in my life. I am eternally grateful to both of them.”

- Executive Board Member, Dr. Intisar Shareef
