Facilitator Information: 
Sahara worked in the corporate world for nearly a decade after receiving a BS in math and computer science before deciding to go back to school to become a licensed massage therapist. After learning about Positive Discipline in 1999, she began teaching it starting in 2001 and the rest is history. As a lead facilitator for Sound Discipline, Sahara supports the facilitation staff in developing their understanding of our content and offers perceptions and views into personnel growth. 

She loves to start most days with a workout and is happiest riding her bike outdoors on a beautiful day. Sahara loves to cook, make chocolates, knit and watch movies with friends in her spare time. Her personal motto in life is: "You're human. Forgive yourself, find gratitude, and spread joy."

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.
