The Positive Discipline Annual Conference will now be an online event.  Live interactive sessions as well as pre-recorded sessions will feature presentations for educators, clinicians, and parents. Spend the day developing Positive Discipline tools for home and school, or to support others through your coaching, consulting, or counseling practice. CE Credit is available.

Each Conference track will have a variety of live online interactive sessions as well as prerecorded options.
