Conscious Discipline Conference

Join us for the first Education Empowerment Series event, presented by the Junior League of Fort Wayne on Saturday, August 5, 2017! Our inaugural conference-style experience will showcase Conscious Discipline with nationally recognized presenter, Amy Speidel. Attendees will enjoy the innovative and comfortable learning atmosphere at the Parkview Mirro Center.

Tickets are $35 per person. The cost covers a full day of training and learning, breakfast, and lunch. Tickets must be purchased in advance.

Doors and registration open at 8:30am. The conference will begin at 9am and conclude at 4pm.

The Education Empowerment Series is intended for teachers, daycare providers, and parents. However, everyone is invited to attend!

More about Conscious Discipline:

FOR TEACHERS Conscious Discipline integrates social-emotional learning, discipline and self-regulation so you spend less time policing behaviors and more time teaching vital life skills. Conscious Discipline is a longtime leader in integrating classroom management and social-emotional learning. It utilizes everyday events rather than an external curriculum, and addresses the adult’s emotional intelligence as well as the child’s. Learn to respond to daily conflict in a way that transforms it into an opportunity to teach critical life skills, and watch every aspect of your classroom life improve! It is evidence-based, and was named as a national model for character education by the Florida State Legislature.

FOR PARENTS/CARETAKERS Conscious Discipline provides a proven and comprehensive approach that will improve both your life and the lives of your children. It empowers you with the self-awareness, brain information, developmental knowledge and useable skills necessary to create safe, connected, problem-solving homes.

Easy to Love, Difficult to Discipline is the core Conscious Discipline publication for parents. It is unique from other forms of guidance because it:

Defines discipline not as something you do to children, but something you develop within them. Teaches new skills to the adult first and the children second, empowering you to become the mindful parent you want to be. With Conscious Discipline, we can learn to discipline differently than we were disciplined, break the cycle of “do as I say, not as I do,” and discipline our children without permissiveness, aggression or guilt.

Proven and Effective Play Therapy Strategies with Children and Adolescents of All Ages

Overview: Children lack some cognitive abilities needed to understand their world and experiences because they are still developing. Additionally, they lack the vocabulary to communicate their emotions and perceptions to someone else. This is where Play Therapy can be a useful tool. Participants will learn how to understand the child’s presenting problems, behaviors, and emotions through their play. Attendees will leave with a toolbox filled with ready to use Play Therapy techniques which they will immediately be able to implement in their work with children and adolescents. This toolbox will consist of interventions for different presenting problems such as anger, ADHD, depression, anxiety and more. Some of the tools will include Sand Tray therapy, coloring, use of puppets, dance/movement, “I Spy”, and many more. Much of this conference will include active learning and participation, so get ready to learn, have fun, and see the world through a child’s eyes!
