Session Description: 
In this introductory session participants will have the opportunity to learn about the ECE certification. Attendees will participate in experiential online activities. Don't miss the chance to meet and learn directly from the ECE Program Developers, Cheryl Erwin and Steven Foster!

The Positive Discipline for Early Childhood Educators (ECE) workshop is designed for early childhood educators, teachers, and caregivers who work with children from birth to six years of age. Parents will also find this workshop helpful; however, the focus is on early childhood education.

The recording of this session will be available 2 weeks after the event to those who register. 


You can become a certified Positive Discipline Early Childhood Educator by registering to one of our upcoming certification workshops. Participants will learn to apply the principles and tools of Positive Discipline, an Adlerian research-based philosophy, to working with groups of young children. They will also gain a deeper understanding of how young children learn, the importance of belonging and social and emotional learning, and how to best teach those skills in a classroom or care setting. 



Prior to the 2023 Positive Discipline Conference in San Diego, California, Cheryl Erwin, MA, MFT, CPDLT and Steven Foster, LCSW, CPDLT will facilitate a two-day Positive Discipline for Early Childhood Educators workshop. The learning objectives are the following:

  • Create a classroom or care setting where children can develop a sense of belonging and significance based on the importance of contribution and mutual respect.
  • Understand how young children learn and how to adapt teaching to the needs of this age group.
  • Foster essential social and emotional skills to support development and school readiness, and understand behavior and how to guide it in groups of young children.
  • Teach the essential skills for developmentally appropriate participation in class meetings.
  • Learn Positive Discipline and Adlerian concepts for use in the classroom, preschool community, and with parents.

Date: July 26 and 27, 2023

Time: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (Pacific Time)

Location: The Double Tree by Hilton – San Diego, California
