Pam Sikorski

Director of Training With CPI since 2002

“For many of us in the helping professions, we excel at taking care of others, but we sometimes put ourselves last on the priority list. Self-care is critical if we want to have enough mental and physical energy in the tank to be able to take good care of others and maintain our professionalism.”

In addition to being Training Director and our resident Resource Specialist, Pam delivers presentations at national conferences such as CEC, APBS, and OCALI, and writes for CPI on a variety of topics. Her current role follows 12 wonderful years working as a Global Professional Instructor, teaching Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training in the US, Canada, Europe, and New Zealand.

Before joining CPI, Pam was in the social work field, supporting adults with developmental disabilities. She has also served on the Board of Directors for the Association for the Rights of Citizens With Handicaps in Waukesha, WI.

Her favorite part of her job is connecting Certified Instructors with resources that make training richer, deeper, and more customized for their audiences. You can connect with Pam directly at 414.979.7100 or by email.

Favorite CPI Memory

I remember my colleagues presented me with my training shoes “bronzed” when I retired from being a Global Professional Instructor and moved into an office position. The shoes sit on my desk as a wonderful visual reminder of my 12 years living on the road and all the wonderful Certified Instructors I met during those years.

Fun Facts
  • My love for writing started pretty early in life. From 6th through 8th grade, my best friend and I wrote a column about happenings in our school for the weekly local newspaper in our town.
  • My hobbies include going to live theater performances and participating in two card-playing groups and a book club.
  • I love ethnic food of all types and adventurously trying new things I’ve never eaten before.
