Positive Discipline and Adlerian Trainings for Professionals


Teaching Parenting the Positive Discipline Way

Become a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator! Research has demonstrated the importance of social and emotional learning, even above academics. Positive Discipline parenting tools teach valuable social and life skills without using any form of punishment, rewards, praise, permissiveness and even logical consequences—at least hardly ever.

  • All individuals completing the 2-day training will be Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educators and will receive a free 1-year membership to the Positive Discipline Association and a free 1-year membership in the Austin Parenting Network- a professional directory of certified positive discipline educators in the greater Austin area.
  • LPCs, LMFTs, Social Workers, and Psychologists may earn 13 hours of CEUs.
  • Training materials include the Positive Discipline book (by Jane Nelsen, Ed.D.) and the Teaching Parenting manual, which includes over 75 experiential activities to use with parents and caregivers.

Participants will:

  • 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 and non-permissive).
  • Learn how to use materials and activities in group settings, parenting classes and individual work with families.
  • Gain practice with experiential exercises for “getting into the child’s world” to understand the “belief behind behavior” in order to motivate change.
