    Are you a new or experienced parent educator looking for fresh tools, ideas, activities, and enthusiasm? Are you looking for ways to empower yourself and the parents you teach? Do you wonder how you can become a parent educator who can teach Positive Discipline classes? Do you wish you could immerse yourself in Positive Discipline as a parent? Do you hope to find some new tools to use with clients in family therapy or offer parenting classes to your clients? Do you train others who work with children or support those with disabilities? We can help! Come to this practical and inspiring two-day certification workshop, where you will acquire:

    • Knowledge: Learn research-based, effective tools for teaching parents how to use discipline that is kind and firm at the same time, avoiding the pitfalls of both permissiveness and punishment. 
    • Practice: You will have many opportunities to lead experiential activities in a supportive setting. These activities reach beyond the intellect to the heart to inspire deeper understanding and change.  
    • Coaching Skills: Learn the benefits of facilitating parenting classes from the position of a coach rather than an "expert."          
    • Materials: Tuition includes a copy of Positive Discipline, a deck of Positive Discipline Tool Cards, and a notebook full of experiential activities to use in parent classes, trainings, or in a one-on-one approach with clients and families.       
    • Connection: An opportunity to be connected with others who are passionate about supporting parents in one of the most important roles of their lives.        
    • Recognition:After the two days, all participants receive a document identifying them as Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educators. 

    Facilitator Background: 
    Cheryl Forse and Deb Pysno are parent educators licensed by the state of Minnesota with over 40 years of combined experience working with families. They are both Certified Positive Discipline Trainers.
