Facilitator Information: 
As Director of Program at Sound Discipline, Stacy holds the vision for this work, believing deeply in its power to change the world one educator, one student, one classroom, one school at a time. In addition to direct service professional development, coaching, and consultation, Stacy works to create new resources for transformation in schools and to lead Sound Discipline facilitators in their journey. 
Stacy clearly sees the systems challenges in schools and is committed to supporting educators who want to make a difference but don't know a way out of the "system". Over the years, Stacy has come to understand that the work of Sound Discipline is not simply about intervening to fix a broken system. Rather, we are disrupting a system that in fact is doing precisely what it was designed to do: create division and oppression. By giving adults tools for being in relationship with each other, self-awareness and support, this work can create peace and dignity for all students and challenge deep inequities in our communities. 
For Stacy, this work has shaped how she sees the world and how she interacts with everyone in her personal and professional life. She is deeply grateful for the transformational impact it has had on her relationships with her three children. This experience has fueled her passion for teaching parenting classes, which she has done for the last 14 years in a variety of settings ranging from co-op preschools, and elementary schools to homeless and court-ordered families and families in transition housing. She believes deeply that every parent is doing the best they can with the tools they have, and sees that when we offer parents new tools in a respectful way, we help them change the way they show up for their children and powerful things can happen. 
When she is not working, Stacy is happiest spending time with her family. She appreciates the small moments together and enjoys watching her kids do what they love. She also loves to cook, bake, and share traditions with her family. 
Her personal motto, which her colleagues witness her living by every day, is "Always walk the talk."

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
