    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.

      Facilitator Information:
      Joy Marchese has worked as a teacher, trainer, and parent educator in various schools and corporate settings for over 19 years. Her experience teaching in both public and private schools, training managers in large companies and running an educational non-profit organization has helped her understand the unique needs of culturally, ethnically and socially diverse groups. 

      Most recently Joy delivers training and workshops internationally through Positive Discipline UK. Concurrently she also works as a secondary teacher at The American School in London, England, where she successfully implements Positive Discipline in the classroom and delivers teacher training and parent education courses within her school and community. 

      Joy was first introduced to Positive Discipline while training teachers to work with students in "at risk" schools throughout the boroughs of New York City. At the time she was the Program Director for an educational non-profit organization whose aim was to build resiliency in children. Joy's own success using the Positive Discipline tools while teaching High School students at Rikers Island Jail is what motivated her to share these tools with others that spent their time with children that displayed extreme behaviour challenges. What she quickly realized is that every child is "at risk" of not fulfilling their true potential and that all children needed to learn these same life skills. 

      Joy's Master Degree in Education from Hofstra University is secondary to the education and experience she has achieved from her successes and challenges as a teacher to thousands of students. Joy has a lifelong commitment and passion for child development and education. It is her mission to share her knowledge and experience with both teachers and parents around the globe.

      Nadine Gaudin a Positive Discipline trainer, Parent Educator, and teacher. She has taught for 15 years in Primary Schools in France and now focuses on Positive Discipline. Nadine has been providing workshops around the world.

      is a Certified Positive Discipline Lead Trainer with over 30 years of experience in education, serving 9 years as the Director of an elementary/middle school that incorporated Positive Discipline and Class Meetings. Currently Dina works as a Leadership Coach with programs for individuals and teams. Dina has presented at educational conferences in the U.S. and Canada for the North American Society of Adlerian Psychology and the National Association of Educators of Young Children. She has been a Certified Trainer for Positive Discipline for over 25 years, and has trained teachers and parents in Positive Discipline on four continents.
