This manual is designed for early childhood educators, teachers, and caregivers who work with children from birth to six years of age. You will learn to apply the principles and tools of Positive Discipline, an Adlerian research-based philosophy, to working with groups of young children.

Workshop

Dr. Jane Nelsen, Cheryl Erwin, and Steven Foster have completed the much anticipated Early Childhood Educator Manual and two-day interactive workshop designed for early childhood educators, teachers, and caregivers who work with children from birth to six years of age.

In this two day certification workshop participants will learn to apply the principles and tools of Positive Discipline, an Adlerian research-based model, 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 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.

Great material

As usual, a very good material from PD professionals adopted and adapted to use in early educational settings. Found it very valuable and pretty well written. Great exercises, even few exercises to use with kids. Just a few things in order to make it even better in my opinion: the streamline (the structure) is a little bit random and off at some point (for people who doesn't know PD), it would make much more sense to have a system or an order in which information and exercises are given (I know, supposedly it has a system, but it's not sufficient in my opinion). It would eliminate repetition of the same ideas over and over again and play down natural learning resistance that is rising when PD is presented. You see, not all teachers are willing to take the training and often it's a daycare or school's owner who wants her school to use positive discipline. So, to placate and spike an interest in teachers one needs to convince them. I think, all info about neurological development, temperament and attachment should be the one chapter that referres to up to date evidence. And then everything gets build on it - connection, self-regulation, accountability, self-motivation and independence. Again, it's my opinion and my experience that it would be more engaging and helpful to promote PD. Thank you!
