Workshop Description: 
This is an online interactive workshop designed for parent educators, teachers, therapists, childcare professionals and others who want an effective discipline approach. This method is based on Adlerian Psychology and integrates social and emotional learning while reducing challenging behaviors. Successful participants will earn recognition as a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator and will:

  1. Learn research based and effective tools and techniques for teaching parents how to use discipline that is kind and firm at the same time (non-punitive, non-permissive)
  2. Learn how to facilitate a parent class from the position of a non-expert and gain practice with experiential exercises that help parents go beyond intellectual understanding to be able to respond in empowering ways that teach children.
  3. Learn how to use materials and activities in group settings, parenting classes and individual work with families.

Additional Information: This workshop is focused on the Muslim home dynamics. There will be an optional 30 min discussion following the end of each session to address the Muslim Home dynamics related to Positive Discipline concepts. Attending the optional discussion is not necessary for the certification.
