    Workshop Description:
    All children misbehave, make mistakes, and some more than others. We can become trapped in cycles of emotions and reactive behaviors that focus on the child’s behavior instead of focusing on their potential. Learn how to recognize the goals of behavior and four things that adults can do that will help every child grow toward the person he/she was meant to be. Remove the burden of emotion from your shoulders and enjoy your parenting.


    Facilitator Background:

    Laurie Prusso is a Professor of Child Development at Modesto Junior College in California. Focusing on emotional and social development in young children and all human beings, she provides consulting services to Head Start, State funded programs, Local Planning Councils, Resource and Referral Agencies, Local First 5 CARES projects, and School-Age programs and others around the state and has been a popular presenter at CAEYC, NAEYC and at other conferences and retreats.

    Laurie earned her BA in Human Development and a Masters Degree in Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood from California State University. She has worked with children, adult learners, and parents. In addition, Laurie has been a family childcare provider, and a preschool teacher and director. She is a Certified Positive Discipline Trainer and presents workshops and trainings related to discipline with emotional health and social development in mind. In addition, she consults with programs to improve their adult relationships and to help them support parents and families. As a consultant with West Ed, Laurie is currently a trainer with the CSEFEL project. Laurie’s work has been published in professional journals including the winter 2010 issue of CAEYC Connections.

    Laurie's first and favorite role is mother. With 6 grown children, all sons, and 15+ grandchildren, Laurie has over two hundred years of experience parenting and teaching. In her spare time, she writes, plays the guitar and sings when no one is around to hear her.

    It's OK To Cry: Helping children develop their emotional muscles!
     

    With Laurie Prusso, CPDT

    Registration Fees:
    • $10 for PDA Members- Login on website-go to Trainer or Educator Section to Register

    •   PTAs
    •   Agencies
    •   Study Groups, etc.

    (See below for conditions of use)

    Workshop Description:
    One of the biggest complaints parents have today is that when they set a limit, their children are not happy about it. There is a groundswell of worry and concern based in the mistaken idea that our children should be happy with whatever we want them to do, or we need to back down, negotiate with them, convince them or become angry. It is OK for children to be unhappy when they don't get what they want!

    This teleconference will give you the courage to be Kind and Firm, to ask and follow through, and to feel confident in your decisions to help your children develop emotional strength. In addition, it will provide understanding of the process, the triggers, and the solutions to support your effective parenting.

    Real life scenarios will allow you to explore your own style and discover fun and effective ways to grow with your child and learn about yourself as you love and respect your child.

    (See below for conditions of use)

    Workshop Description:
    This teleconference will look briefly at the infant/caregiver attachment cycle, the basics of brain development, and how these are specifically impacted by trauma (abuse and/or neglect). Current research regarding some of the most prevalent, and misunderstood ‘mis’behaviors that occur with this population of children (lying, stealing, hoarding of food, etc) will be explored. The teleconference will finish with a discussion of Positive Discipline ‘relationship-based’ theory and several specific PD tools that can be powerful healers for these children.
           
    Facilitator Background:  
    Penny has been an Adlerian parenting educator/trainer/consultant for over 30 years. She is currently a Certified Positive Discipline Lead Trainer. In the past decade, much of her research, expertise, and training of others (parents, caregivers, social workers, teachers) has focused on children with chronic trauma histories, and the power of the Positive Discipline theory and practices in working/living with this population. She retired from full time employment as the Director of Foster and Kinship Care Education at a southern California community college in June 2011, but has continued her work privately, as a trainer and consultant for many agencies and schools.

    Deepening Your Understanding

    Session 3: A focus on holism, teleology and social interest


    With
     Deborah Owen-Sohocki, LPC, CPDLT


    Workshop Description:
    In this third session we will examine four more key concepts of Adler:  Holism, Teleology, Phenomenology, and Social Interest.  By developing an understanding of these four concepts the participant will deepen their personal self-awareness and hopefully be more open to view their children, their relationships, their clients, and themselves with compassionate wisdom. With this deepening of understanding, it is hoped that the participant will be encouraged to become more fully engaged in Social Interest at all levels of living.

    Adlerian Psychology: 
    Deepening Your Understanding

    Session 3: A focus on holism, teleology and social interest


    With
     Deborah Owen-Sohocki, LPC, CPDLT


    Workshop Description:
    In this third session we will examine four more key concepts of Adler:  Holism, Teleology, Phenomenology, and Social Interest.  By developing an understanding of these four concepts the participant will deepen their personal self-awareness and hopefully be more open to view their children, their relationships, their clients, and themselves with compassionate wisdom. With this deepening of understanding, it is hoped that the participant will be encouraged to become more fully engaged in Social Interest at all levels of living.

            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.

            Ongoing Support:
            After the training, we will support you (at no charge) in your Positive Discipline journey over the coming months by providing ongoing feedback, encouragement and mentoring. To facilitate this, we ask that you do the following:
            Write a reflection of the training and your PD experience so far. We will offer a few questions at the training to guide you through your reflection. Submit the reflection within 30 days after the training. Your facilitators will offer feedback and mentoring based on the reflection, and issue your certificate.
            Participate in the monthly on-line group mentoring via tele-conference, which will be offered for a 3-month period after course completion.

            Wendy ye 

            is a Certified Positive Discipline Trainer, lead translator and chief editor of Chinese TP Manual, and the co-founder of Positive Discipline Chinese Association (PDCA). In the past five years since 2010, she was invited by schools, educational institutions, churches and social organizations to give presentations, to facilitate workshops and deliver seminars in both China and Canada. From the learning and practicing of Positive Discipline principles, she got insights that both parents and kids’ changes take time. Change also requires patience, empathy, acceptance, and unconditional love. Parents are the first teachers and leaders to lead their kids to be future good citizens and leaders. A good society depends on positive individuals, healthy families and respectful relationships. Before she was involved with Positive Discipline, she had 26 years of professional experience in technology management, general management and management consulting. She holds a Bachelor degree from China, an MBA from the U.S and she was an Associate Professor, teaching bilingual MBA courses and delivering bilingual EMBA courses with UCLA professors in a prestigious business school in China. She was also invited as a visiting scholar by Foster School of Business in the University of Washington (UW) to do academic research in the service industry and present papers at national and international conferences.  And she is the mother of a young adult.
