    Workshop Description:
    POSITIVE DISCIPLINE comes from the theories of Alfred Adler, M.D. and Rudolf Dreikurs, M.D., early pioneers of “Individual Psychology,” adapted for child guidance by world-renowned authors, Jane Nelsen, Ed.D. and Lynn Lott, MFT. The teachings are filled with non-punitive, non-permissive, respectful methods that encourage a child’s “self-discipline” through tools such as understanding the “belief behind the behavior,” holding family and class meetings, learning from mistakes with dignity intact, and many more.

    Through experiential learning, POSITIVE DISCIPLINE help adults learn with their “heart” as well their “head” in an engaging, supportive way. The activities used help us “see the world through the child’s eyes,” allowing adults to gain immediate insight into problem behavior and effective solutions.

    These courses provide specific training enabling the participant to become either a “Certified Positive Discipline Parenting (or) Classroom Educator,” as authorized by the Positive Discipline Association (www.positivediscipline.org). This qualifies the recipient to teach Positive Discipline parenting classes or use Positive Discipline in their classroom, and to become part of an international network of Positive Discipline Educators. Attendees will also be invited to join in a mentor group of Certified Educators, to receive continuous support along their Positive Discipline journey.

    All courses are taught in both English and Chinese.

    Ongoing Suport:  Please see Flier.
