The Positive Discipline Association supports the international efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19. In an effort to continue our mission of creating respectful relationships in homes and schools, we are moving many of our events online. Parent Educators are offering online events for parents. Trainers are offering a limited number of live interactive online certification workshops supported by pre-recorded online streaming videos by our founders, Jane Nelsen and Lynn Lott. In addition, our annual Positive Discipline Public Conference will be an online event with access to many presentations that can be watched at your own pace and will feature a keynote address by Dr. Jane Nelsen.

To create a peaceful world by teaching Adlerian social and emotional life skills for respectful relationships.

For Schools

Hundreds of schools use these amazingly effective strategies for restoring order and civility to today's turbulent classrooms. Now you too can use Positive Discipline as a foundation for fostering cooperation, problem-solving skills, and mutual respect in students.

For Parent Educators

Recent research tells us that children are “hardwired” from birth to connect with others, and that children who feel a sense of connection to their community, family, and school are less likely to misbehave. To be successful, contributing members of their community, children must learn necessary social and life skills.


Teachers, Administrators, Professional Development Personnel, Counselors, community representatives, and anyone who works with young people and wants to promote mutual respect and character development will benefit from our certification process.

international AFFILIATES

Positive Discipline has become a global organization with trainers in over 50 countries throughout the world! Many of the training materials have been translated or are in the process of being translated. We also have a DVD Training and Online Streaming Training available for those who cannot find a local training.
