The course will meet for 4 sessions. The first 3 sessions will contain a 60 minute video lecture by Dr. Neufeld and then approximately 90 minutes to discuss the material and how to apply it. The final class will be a time to discuss application and questions. I am approved through the Neufeld Institute to facilitate this class. 

Course objectives:

  • to apply developmental science to the arena of discipline
  • to enable parents and teachers to think critically regarding the current discipline practices
  • to provide a philosophy of discipline that is congruent with science and with the developmental needs of the child
  • to equip parents and teachers with the inner confidence to handle problem behaviour
  • to provide discipline strategies that are attachment-safe and developmental friendly
  • to provide special strategies for stuck kids who cannot benefit from normal discipline measures
