For many years we have wondered how we could provide training for people who are unable to attend our live 2-day workshops. The DVD training includes experiential activities so you can at least watch others participating in the activities and learning to teach the activities. Then you can practice the activities with friends or a “practice group.”
Jane Nelsen and Lynn Lott have completed a DVD training that includes 6 1/2 hours filmed at a live training and requires about 6 1/2 hours of homework to practice the skills in order to receive a certificate as a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator. At the end of this training, you will be ready to lead parenting classes and/or improve your skills as a parent educator regardless of the setting in which you work (counseling office, pre-school, etc.)
A Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator certificate will be awarded to you once the Answer Sheet is completed in a Word.doc/docx format. You will receive an email with feedback and a certificate signed by Jane Nelsen and Lynn Lott. The work involved to complete the answer sheet (14 questions) takes an additional 6 1/2 hours above and beyond watching the DVD’s because it includes practicing some of the experiential activities and the Parents Helping Parents Problem-Solving Steps with friends. 
CE Credit Information
Course meets qualifications for 13 hours Continuing Education. Positive Discipline has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider. ACEP No. 6723. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. Positive Discipline is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.
The training includes the following materials:
  • 5 DVDS
  • A Teaching Parenting the Positive Discipline Way manual
  • Training Guide manual
  • A Positive Discipline book
  • The Positive Discipline Tool Cards
  • The Positive Discipline Workbook
  • Certificate upon completion
A hallmark of the Positive Discipline workshops (and classes) is experiential activities. Role-playing is the most profound way to learn, not only in your head, but also in your heart and gut. Participating in experiential activities and role-playing is the best way to “get into the child’s world” to understand what children are thinking, feeling, and deciding in response to the discipline methods used with them. How else can we really understand the long-term effects of discipline methods? Even parents who initially resist role-playing soon discover how much more they learn when they participate (or at least watch others role-playing). They soon give up their resistance and enjoy the fun and deep learning from experiential activities.
Another hallmark of Positive Discipline workshops is how much participants learn from each other. You will learn how to avoid long lectures and invite participants to share what they are learning from “getting into the child’s world” through the experiential activities. The insights they share with each other is much more meaningful and heartfelt than any lectures they could hear from “experts.”
Another great hallmark of Positive Discipline parenting classes that you will learn is the Parents Helping Parents Problem-Solving-Steps. During each parenting class, a volunteer parent shares a specific challenge with a child and you, the facilitator, lead the parent through a 14 step process that includes role-playing to “get into the child’s world,” and involves the whole group to brainstorm for solutions. This is very empowering to everyone one. The volunteer then chooses one suggestion and role-plays practicing it, or being the child to experience what the suggestion “feels” like to the child. This soon becomes the favorite part of every parenting class where all the Positive Discipline tools come together for practical application for “real” challenges.
The disadvantage is that video training cannot provide the same energy as participating in a live workshop.
The advantages are:
  • Videos you can watch over and over. (If you give the videos your full attention, and practice with friends, you can come close to "being there.")
  • Can do on your own time schedule (especially beneficial for people with small children or a busy schedule)
  • Save travel expenses (airfare, hotel, food) if you can't find training near you.
  • Money back guarantee if not satisfied.

Thank you for providing me this training while living in Manila. A fantastic substitute! I love being able to review the DVDs. As an educator, I’ve always wanted to be able to reach the parents in a way that gives them practical skills and helps them understand their children in a way that brings about a more positive relationship. Thanks again for offering such a powerful tool to those of us living at a distance!

Learning from the Experts

The training DVDs, manual, book, cards, and workbook are incredible tools! I LOVED this training and it was amazing to learn from the experts. The chemistry between you two and the group was engaging and motivating. I have watched some of the DVDS twice or three times and my husband even enjoyed watching them with me. The manual is straight forward and concise. I'm really excited to start my PD Parenting Class. Thanks for giving me all the tools necessary to prepare me for this journey!

Practical, Helpful, Positive - Thank you!

Thank you so much for offering the Positive Discipline Parent Educator Training in DVD form. I was able to go through it gradually while I practiced what I was learning with real, live parents who I didn't know before the training. I learned so much about myself - mostly that I am extremely passionate about facilitating and I love, love, love how the activities are engaging and experiential. Thank you again for offering helpful insights, activities and skills for parents.

PD Training

Thank you so much for having this training on DVDs. although I would love to be at one of the two day training, it was not offered in Pasadena Ca.. I'm just getting started, I watched and took notes of the 1st two DVDs, and planning on finishing it over the Christmas break. I would recommend this training to teachers, coaches, MFTs, MSWs and all who work with families and children. Great program:))

PD Teaching Parenting DVD Facilitator Training

DVD training at my own pace: could pause the video as needed (I could not take 2 days off work -doing this at home made this available to me) – could repeat scenes (as needed) • Loved the experiential activities– so effective so much to learn from them • Understanding me /reflecting on my behavior and how it affects others (top card) • Having a process to follow step by step (I didn’t have to figure it all out just follow the directions and watch/learn from the results)

I’d like to thank you both for taking the time to share your wonderful products and philosophy. Positive Discipline has been my number one tool for helping parents, children and staff. I thoroughly enjoyed the training and look forward to taking my skills to a new level. I have been entertaining thoughts of a career shift in the future and your program may be a way for me to slow down a bit, but still be purposely engaged in helping families find the peace and joy that we all strive for.

I purchased this program for personal growth as a parent myself, and to better serve my probation clients. I have been thrilled with this product and I plan to use what I have learned not only with my parenting groups, but also in our recovery groups too.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to "attend" your Teaching Parenting DVD Training. It was really wonderful! I have wanted to attend a training for so long and this DVD finally gave me the chance. Plus, an added bonus is that I can watch it again and again. The DVD really revitalized my role as a parent educator and affirmed me as a mother. I feel like it took my understanding of Positive Discipline to a new level.

I utilize PD principles in every aspect of my life, personal and professional and can really tell when I begin to neglect those principles. It is information that never grows old and always adds energy, excitement, and enjoyment to any relationship.

I am enjoying this training immensely. It is changing the way I am currently facilitating our parenting course. I have learned how important it is to let go of the need to control the learning that takes place in my workshops. By providing experiential activities and the PHPPSS, the participants are in control of theirlearning. I also experienced some insight into myself as a mother, a wife, a friend and as a daughter!
