$40.00 per person

*Note these workshops start at 6:00 p.m and will run over two evenings. Participants must attend both evenings.

This two part workshop will be an overview of the Positive Discipline program developed by Dr. Joan Durrant, University of Manitoba in collaboration with Save the Children. This Positive Discipline program was designed to be for all adults working with children and cultures, is easily accessible, and is based on an integration of academic research findings and human rights principles. The programs objective is to help caregivers to become problem-solvers and mentors to children, rather than relying on punishments to control the children’s behaviour. Participants will learn about strengthening caregiver-child attachment, de-escalating conflict through understanding and addressing the stress response, and increasing caregiver knowledge of child development and expected behaviours.

Facilitator: Jean Tinling is currently the Director of Family Programs at Mosaic-Newcomer family Resource Network. Her background and training is in Early Childhood and she has had over 25 years of front line experience with 3-5 year olds as an Early Years teacher. Also a Master Trainer in Positive Discipline Jean leads Positive Discipline trainings in Manitoba, as well as several countries in East Africa and Indonesia. Jean works closely with the Mosaic Childcare team and led the collaborative writing of Mosaic’s Childcare Manual. Jean has always been a strong advocate for children’s rights and for supporting childcare workers, teachers and parents in their relationships with children.
