Longer Courses

Longer courses are perfect if you'd like to gain in-depth knowledge and understanding of your child's behaviour and most of the Positive Discipline parenting principles and tools. These usually last up to 7 weeks - we meet once a week  for a two and a half hour workshops. You then have a week to try what you've learned and come back for debrief, feedback and more principles and tools. 

Here are examples of longer Positive Discipline courses:

General Positive Discipline

Positive Discipline for Teenagers

Positive Discipline for Parenting in Recovery

Positive Discipline for Preschoolers

These courses usually cost £140. Dr Jane Nelsen's book Positive Discipline is included in the price. You will also get a Certificate of Completion at the end of the course. 


Programmes for Childminders and other Childcare providers

If you are a childminder, or a Head of a nursery or preschool, and if you would like to create and environment that is structured, inviting and nurturing for children in your care, then Positive Discipline is a perfect solution. 

If you are representing a nursery or a preschool, the best way to learn about Positive Discipline and how it can transform your setting, is to invite us to deliver Positive Discipline training during your INSET days. Obviously, it is difficult to commit to a programme you don't know much about. This is why we would be more than happy to deliver short taster session to you and your staff, free of charge, to help you understand what Positive Discipline stands for and whether it is a programme you'd like to use in your setting. You can always contact us on marijana@pdparentingsolutions.org or via the Contact page, should you have any questions or would simply like to discuss options.
