Conscious Discipline – Mt. Vernon (Class Full)
Each childcare program or classroom has its own culture that supports behavioral patterns that aid or impede learning. Conscious Discipline helps teachers become aware of and skilled at how to intentionally build a culture of learning. To successfully teach a life skill we must model and demonstrate it in daily life. Conscious Discipline® is an evidence-based, trauma-informed approach. It is recognized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices, and received high ratings in a Harvard analysis of the nation’s top 25 social-emotional learning programs.
This is a 5-week session over three months for 20 hours of professional learning:
January 12, session 1 & 2
January 19, session 3 & 4
February 9, (rescheduled due to snow)
February 16, session 5 & 6
March 9, session 7 & 8
March 16, session 9 & 10 (make-up day due to snow)
