Erin Olson, M.Ed., M.S., LPC-IT, NCC, will present the key concepts of Positive Discipline, incorporating current research on early brain development and attachment. Both Positive Discipline and this research indicate that, as parents, we need to focus on how we relate to our children in addition to how they behave. Following a warm-up activity and introduction to the key concepts, Erin will lead the group through an experiential activity (a hallmark of Positive Discipline). This will be followed by an opportunity to process the activity and ask questions. Participants will also receive copies of several Positive Discipline tools and strategies that they can use at home.
Erin Olson is a Licensed Professional Counselor-in-training, Positive Discipline Parent Educator and co-owner at Flourish Counseling Milwaukee in Shorewood, Wisconsin. http://flourishcounselingmilwaukee.com/
