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

Additional Information:
Following this workshop, Jody will be offering a 6-week parenting class. Anyone who attends this workshop will be welcome to join the parenting class and practice your new found facilitation skills. This opportunity will give you the chance to gain even more confidence and knowledge.
