Barbara A. Hosler
Barb is a Certified Parent Educator and Trainer with the International Network for Children and Families. For the past 20+ years, she has been sharing her insights and knowledge with individuals, couples, families and teachers; at conventions, in corporations, in classrooms, and as a featured guest on several radio talk shows.
“Teaching TLC all these years has allowed me the opportunity to be a motivating factor in so many individuals’ journey called ‘life.’ Assisting them to achieve new dimensions of relationship with themselves and others—as well as bearing witness to their seeing and accomplishing the vastness of what is possible—has given me a deep sense of purpose and a level of joy and appreciation that is difficult to describe.”
Beyond TLC, Barb continues to motivate and encourage people of all ages to grow beyond what they believe possible through teaching such other personal growth courses as:
- Redirecting Children’s Behavior—a 15 hour parenting course
- The Kid’s Course—personal growth and team building for kids ages 8-12
- The Next Step—a year-long leadership program
- Living With Power—a one-day empowerment workshop
She has had the pleasure to teach these courses not only in the United States, but in Israel and Spain, as well.
Barb is the proud recipient of the 2007, “Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Award for Uplifting Human Values” given by the international Art of Living Foundation.
“When I teach TLC, I get to make a difference. The course empowers people to improve their relationships at home, at work, and with themselves. I am continually inspired by seeing others break through toward more fulfilled lives.”
In addition to being a successful seminar facilitator, Michael has had an exciting career in government and business. After graduating from Columbia University, he spent several years as a Senior Legislative Aide in the United States House of Representatives. He is currently pursuing a successful commercial real estate career.
Terry has been the only trainer for new TLC instructors since 2006. He is currently preparing to begin training new instructors in Israel.
“During my course experience I was awakened to life, its possibilities, and my potential to achieve anything I want, like nothing ever had before. As a result, I could not wait to be a part of others having a similar experience and seeing the possibilities and options available to them. Getting to teach has allowed me to continue that process and continues to challenge me in ways I could never have imagined before. Simply put, TLC helped me find my passion and get to do it for a living.”
In addition to teaching TLC, Terry teaches a year-long advanced course, The Next Step, which he designed and began teaching in 1997. He also spent 10+ years working with families teaching the national course Redirecting Children’s Behavior (RCB), as well as training instructors for the RCB course. Finally, Terry designed and taught a course for teens, beginning in 1998, which has been taught at the New York center, the Monroe, Michigan center and is still being taught in Israel.
Alan spent seven years teaching UYO all over the USA and also participated in two tours of Russia in 1990 and 1991. He found Russia amazing, seeing first-hand that we’re all the same, no matter where our roots are. At the heart of each of us is a warm, loving being sometimes hidden by false and dysfunctional beliefs.
“As a student, I was very deeply struck by the depth of the changes that occurred in my life and in the life of the other students. It was so exciting to me to recognize that I was not limited by the early beliefs that I had adopted as a child and that I could take responsibility for creating the life that I really wanted for myself. I was thrilled to be part of a group of people wanting to offer this kind of change to others. I still am.”
As a happily-married father of three and grandfather of five, Alan feels the imperative of continuing this work in order to make a difference in people’s lives and leave this planet a better place for his children and grandchildren. He is thrilled to join Barb in teaching TLC and feels very privileged to continue making a difference in people’s lives.
