    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.

Positive Discipline in the Classroom offers respectful solutions that work long term. Create a classroom and school environment where students feel encouraged and engaged in learning, solve their own friendship issues, and feel a sense of connection, value and challenge. As an educator you will feel a sense of accomplishment and find your “calm” once more. Participants will learn "the basics" of Positive Discipline and will acquire many tools with which to implement this approach. The course is taught experientially so that there is time to practice new tools. The course is appropriate for teachers, administrators, counselors, paraprofessionals and youth development program providers.

    Workshop Description: The workshop will provide teachers with the concepts and skills necessary to successfully implement effective class meetings that create a classroom which enhances cooperation, collaboration, problem solving skills, conflict resolution, communication skills, accountability, responsibility, self discipline, self-esteem, and mutual respect. This workshop will also introduce Positive Discipline methods that are designed to teach students’ essential life skills and important perceptions of courage, confidence, and capability. The fringe benefit is the elimination of most discipline problems and the opportunity to focus on academic achievement.

    Effective discipline teaches self-discipline from within the student, an “inner locus of control”, by helping the student figure out what causes problems and how to solve them. Punishment teaches an “external locus of control”: where a student depends on punishment or rewards from others as motivators. Effective discipline means using methods that teach important life skills such as cooperation, respect, concern for self and others, and problem solving skills.

    Workshop Objectives:
    1. How to use Positive Discipline Classroom Management Tools.
    2. How to help students feel listened to, valued, and respected - the basis of belonging and significance.
    3. Understand why children misbehave and what to do about it - the misbehaving child is a discouraged child who needs encouragement the most but often gets it the least.
    4. How to teach students the Eight Building Blocks for Effective Class Meetings.
    5. How to use the class meeting process to create a classroom climate that enhances academic learning.
    6. How to use the Teacher Helping Teacher Problem Solving Steps where teachers learn to help each other with real classroom challenges.
    7. Gain experience teaching a social-emotional curriculum that also enhances academic skills.
    8. Have a set of resource materials for future reference.

    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.

        Theme: Parenting Styles and Inviting Cooperation

        Wouldn't it be nice if, every now and then, your child would just do what you asked . . . the first time?

        Did you just sigh, longingly? 

        In this 3-week Parenting with Positive Discipline mini-series, you will experience how different parenting styles can either help or hinder cooperation, as well as learn and practice some amazingly effective and easy ways to encourage cooperation and self-discipline in your kids. Topics include setting limits that stick, routines, how to invite rather than demand cooperation, and family meetings. 

        Participants say, "Simple and profound!" and "I got tangible tools and saw immediate impact!"

        This is a 3-week mini-series running three consecutive Tuesdays starting June 16, 2015.

        Cost: Early Bird (register by May 20) $125/person; $105/2nd caregiver; $110/person for groups 4+ (must register together.)

        Facilitator Background:

        Workshop Description: Feeling challenged by unmotivated students, power struggles, recess problems being dragged into the classroom, no time to teach because you’re constantly dealing with behaviors? Positive Discipline in the Classroom offers respectful solutions that work long term. Create a classroom and school environment where students feel encouraged and engaged in learning, solve their own friendship issues, and feel a sense of connection, value and challenge. As an educator you will feel a sense of accomplishment and find your “calm” once more. Participants will learn "the basics" of Positive Discipline and will acquire many tools with which to implement this approach. The course is taught experientially so that there is time to practice new tools. The course is appropriate for teachers, administrators, counselors, paraprofessionals and youth development program providers.

        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).

        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.
