Facilitator Information: 
Brenda has 30 years experience working with children and parents, in the fields of foster care social work, mental health, work readiness and special education. She discovered Positive Discipline in her search for more effective tools for parents and teachers as they strive to help children overcome both everyday challenges, or even histories of trauma, and still reach their potential. She has provided training in Positive Discipline to more than 4,000 people in the past 8 years - including parent educators, clinicians, teachers, nurses, early childhood teachers, summer camp counselors, and of course, parents.  

Workshop Description:  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: 

  1. Learn research based effective tools and techniques for teaching parents how to use discipline that is kind and firm at the same time (non-punitive, non-permissive). 
  2. Learn how to facilitate a parent class from the position of a non-expert. 
  3. Gain practice with experiential exercises that help parents go beyond intellectual understanding to be able to respond in empowering ways that teach children. 
  4. Learn how to use materials and activities in group settings, parenting classes and individual work with families
