Healing Discipline:

Finding Joy in Working with Challenging Students

College Credit Available!

Course Description

This two-day seminar is based on more than 40 years of combined experience working with children with challenging behaviors and finding success using research-based strategies. The seminar will provide educators with a better understanding of children who have suffered from disruptive attachment and trauma which are often the root cause of inappropriate and/or out-of-control behavior in the classroom. In a fun and interactive way, participants learn that having an emotionally healing environment is about establishing healthy boundaries and building healthy relationships with students. As the educator develops skills and confidence in working with challenging students, they’ll feel more joy and success in their role. This leads to a deeper connection between the educator and student which will enhance the student’s emotional and academic growth. Although the seminar is geared toward educators, mental health professionals and parents will also benefit.
