Compassionate Discipline: Raising Resilient Children
January 18, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$25
This full-day workshop by the Institute of Child Psychology will guide parents, caregivers and educators through effective discipline strategies that honor the relationship with their child and foster neurological development. Furthermore, they will have a better understanding of “what gets in the way” of emotional health in children, and how modern-day discipline can go very wrong with our children [and why it just doesn’t work for us long-term]. All strategies are science-informed, evidence-based, and practical for parenting children.
-Identify parenting tools that foster healthy brain development [children ages 2-11]
-Describe ways in which many current parenting strategies are developmentally inappropriate for children
-Recognize triggers in children and how to take proactive* verses reactive approach to parenting
-Implement a variety of strategies to cope with aggression, anger, anxiety, inattention, tantrums, whining, and emotional dysregulation
-Understand how to reach your child, redirect emotions, and promote psychological growth
