This interactive on-line live and streamed video workshop is 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:
- 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)
- 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.
- Learn how to use materials and activities in group settings, parenting classes and individual work with families.
Both Aisha Pope and Talin Yesaie have worked with a vast number of families of different backgrounds, familial makeup, ethnicities, incarceration, foster care, immigration and much more. In this workshop you will learn about trauma, resiliency and how to share what you have learned in a way that families of color or those that have experienced adversity will not only hear but absorb.
