Facilitator Information: I´m a preschool teacher and have been a principal in preschools since 1997 until last week. I first heard about Positive Discipline in 2009 and started implementing PD in my school in 2010. I have facilitated several PDA workshops, both with colleagues and by my self. I also just finished translating Positive Discipline for Early Childhood Educators in Icelandic. I'm currently the vice president of the Icelandic Teachers Union.

Workshop Description:This two-day interactive workshop is designed for early childhood educators, teachers, and caregivers who work with children from birth to six years of age. (Parents will also find this workshop helpful; however, the focus is on early childhood education.) Participants will learn to apply the principles and tools of Positive Discipline, an Adlerian research-based philosophy, to working with groups of young children. They will also gain a deeper understanding of how young children learn, the importance of belonging and social and emotional learning, and how best to teach those skills in a classroom or care setting. Participants will earn recognition as Certified Positive Discipline Early Childhood Educators and will learn to:

  • Create a classroom or care setting where children can develop a sense of belonging and significance based on the importance of contribution and mutual respect.
  • Understand how young children learn and how to adapt teaching to the needs of this age group.
  • Foster essential social and emotional skills to support development and school readiness and to understand behavior and how to guide it in groups of young children.
  • Teach the essential skills for developmentally appropriate participation in class meetings.
  • Learn Positive Discipline and Adlerian concepts for use in the classroom, preschool community, and with parents.
