We are excited about rolling out a brand new edition of our Making Sense of Discipline course. Since the filming of the existing course, a number of insights have emerged in neuroscience, especially regarding the role of play as well as a more precise understanding of feelings. We believe these added insights will be helpful to parents and teachers, and in addition, make their job of managing behaviour that much more natural, intuitive and even easier.  

Time-out? Consequences? When dealing with children, parents and teachers often want to know what to do when. However, a larger context, including an understanding of the underlying emotions and instincts in a child, is of the utmost importance when considering how to impose order and teach responsibility. In this course, common discipline strategies are discussed in the context of what a child needs for healthy development, and attachment-safe and developmentally friendly discipline strategies are introduced.


Course participants will view the online recordings from their own computers through our Virtual Campus and come together weekly on Zoom as a group under the facilitation of a Neufeld faculty member to discuss the material. 

All classes are recorded, so if you're unable to attend at the scheduled time, it's no problem to catch up!
