Workshop topics

Topics for teachers, administrators, and parents. Here are examples of some of our

popular workshops, reach out for more info.

Siblings & peer conflict

All siblings fight. Learn how to embrace their conflict using specific techniques that teach long-term social-emotional skills and tackle sibling drama. Regardless of their age, children have the opportunity to learn tools that decrease conflict and increase confidence and assertiveness. These skills support peer interactions and social skills outside the home.

Anxiety & trauma

Does your child struggle with: work avoidance, big emotions, sensitivity, social anxiety, screen addiction withdrawal, specific phobias, perfectionism, falling asleep, independence, separation or COVID related anxiety? You are not alone! Learn signs, myths, and helpful strategies for overcoming anxiety in home and at school. Julietta Skoog brings 20 years of experience as a school psychologist, school counselor, Positive Discipline trainer and parent of three to this experiential, insightful workshop. You will leave with tangible tools to use right away with your child, and a renewed sense of hope for how YOU can help.

Encourage vs. praise

What motivates young children? We cover Deci and Ryan’s self-determination theory, Carol Dweck’s growth mindset, and Daniel Pink’s research on motivation through activities that explore the ways of facilitating persistence and intrinsic motivation in children. Shift away from making your student do well, toward helping your student want to do their best. Understand key drivers of intrinsic motivation and how to foster them, including creating a democratic classroom and inviting preschoolers to adhere to classroom expectations based on intrinsic motivation.

Emotional regulation

Learn all about your student’s brain development, mirror neurons and why it matters to offer opportunities to strengthen those neural connections. Learn how to teach emotional regulations skills when big emotions and tantrums erupt. Strategies for strengthening executive functioning, focus, memory, impulse control and empathy for all ages will be included. Take home tools you can use today to effectively deal with challenging behaviors.

What is Positive Discipline?

Positive Discipline

Dr. Jane Nelsen’s Positive Discipline parent education is based on the theories of psychologists Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs. Positive Discipline helps your child feel a sense of significance and belonging through learning important life skills of empowerment, self-reliance and cooperation. This parenting style encourages kindness and firmness at the same time.

Kindness is the way we interact and connect with our children, honoring their dignity and respecting their needs.

Firmness is the way we respect ourselves and the needs of the situation, as well as following through with what we say we are going to do.
