    The Annual Think Tank and Conference at Butler University was a HUGE success. After we all got used to living like college students in dorm rooms, we settled in and enjoyed the experience. 15 countries were represented - Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cameroon, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Mexico, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland and the United States.

    Each year the Positive Discipline Association sponsors a Public Conference and a Members Think Tank. This is a chance for people from all over the world to gather and connect with other Certified Positive Discipline Educators and Trainers. The Conference features presentations for parents and teachers on topics related to implementing Positive Discipline. The Think Tank is our professional development event when members can improve their facilitation skills and get support in Positive Discipline and Adlerian Theory. But more importantly it is a chance to meet in person with others who are dedicated to creating a peaceful world by teaching Adlerian social and emotional life skills for respectful relationships.

    We here at Positive Discipline Association never cease to be amazed at the wonderful people who are attracted to do this work. They are creative, fun, dedicated and passionate people who really believe it is possible to create peace in the world by creating peace in homes and schools.

    This year, 128 Positive Discipline members attended our annual Think Tank in August. Nineteen countries were represented. 

    Think Tank is an opportunity for our members to come together and learn from each other, deepen our understanding of our work, renew our commitment to support families, schools and communities, celebrate our connections, and broaden our perspective of the diverse world we live in.

    We are so grateful for the hard work of the Think Tank Planning Committee: Nadine Gaudin, Kelly Pfeiffer, and Casey O'Roarty! A very big thank you to Talin Yesaie and Gina Graham, as well as the entire Silent Auction team for their support and planning. Also, thank you to Carol Dores for coordinating all logistics and facilities on site at the Town and Country Resort in San Diego!
