The organization goes by the name of ‘Neufeld Institute’ in order to honour the contribution of Dr. Gordon Neufeld whose life’s work has been to create a comprehensive evidence-based model for the unfolding of human potential. The institute was created initially in response to a growing number of educators and helping professionals who wanted in-depth training in attachment-based developmental paradigm approach. The Institute has grown rapidly in response to demands for parent education, professional development and continuing education. As individuals, they are a group of parents, teachers and helping professionals who have experienced the transforming power of insight and organized themselves into faculty, staff, facilitators and volunteers to help pass on this insight to others involved with children. Although the Neufeld Institute is physically headquartered in Vancouver, it uses the latest internet technology to provide training and education throughout the world. Neufeld Faculty as well as training and education programs exist currently in a number of languages including English, French, German, Spanish, Hebrew, Swedish, Russian, Danish and Dutch.
