She frequently facilitates trainings and workshops for mental health professionals and the community at large. Her strong foundation in Islamic sciences guides her work in helping families integrate faith and culture. Noha is passionate about teaching PD to parents and teachers alike. Taking a teen parenting class based on Adlerian principles was instrumental in changing her dynamic with her children as they entered the teen years. Knowing that the class smoothed those difficult years in her home, it has become a personal mission for her to teach and spread PD. She received her B.A. in Zoology from Rutgers University in 1986, and her M.S. in Counseling from California State University, Fullerton, in 2007. Since becoming certified as a Positive Discipline Trainer in 2008, she has conducted numerous trainings for parents and teachers. She has been married for 33 years, and has four adult children and 3 grandchildren.
Teaching Parenting the Positive Discipline Way (developed by Lynn Lott and Jane Nelsen) is a research-based parent education program that provides a step-by-step approach to starting and leading experientially based parenting groups. This program stands alone or offers significant enhancement to any program. It provides experiential activities that reach the heart to inspire deeper understanding and change.
Participants in this workshop will:
- Learn research based effective tools and techniques for teaching parents how to use discipline that is kindand firm at the same time (non-punitive, non-permissive).
- Learn how to facilitate a parent class from the position of a non-expert.
- Gain practice with experiential exercises that help parents go beyond intellectual understanding to be able to respond in empowering ways that teach children.
- Learn how to use materials and activities in group settings, parenting classes and individual work with families
