I was introduced to Positive Discipline during my first year as secondary school counselor at Bonn International School in Bonn, Germany. My school director asked me to attend the "Teaching Parents the Positive Discipline Way" workshop that was being offered at the American School in London. This introduction to Positive Discipline challenged everything I had previously believed about discipline and transformed my approach to counseling, teaching and relationships.
With the guidance and encouragement of the fabulous Joy Marchese, I decided to continue my learning and embarked on a 2-year journey that culminated in my becoming a Certified Positive Discipline Trainer in March 2017.
I am currently living and working in Tokyo, Japan where I enjoy hiking, running, practicing yoga and exploring this amazing culture. At this time, I am also the only Certified Positive Discipline Trainer in Japan. Positive Discipline has introduced me to so many incredible people for whom I am truly grateful, and I am so excited to introduce these principles and strategies to my colleagues in Japan!
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
