Parents and caregivers with children birth to five in Reno County are invited to attend an evening training on Conscious Discipline, with a focus on Managing Emotional Mayhem. The training will be held at Emanuel Lutheran Church, 140 E. 30th, in Hutchinson. Dinner and child care will be provided at no cost.
Conscious Discipline® is the most comprehensive discipline program available. It is specifically designed to provide parents & caregivers with the awareness and skills needed to create safe, connected, problem-solving environments. Rooted in the latest brain research Conscious Discipline® offers multiple areas of focus, from classroom management using the 7 Skills, managing emotional responses and structuring environments for success, to reflecting on how our history shapes our patterns of behavior and knowing we have the ability to create new HEALTHY patterns assuring future success for generations.
This training on Managing Emotional Mayhem will help you if you have struggled with helping a child manage frustration or if you struggle with finding a better way to respond to difficult behaviors. Participants will have the opportunity to make a difference in a child’s life through recognizing patterns of behavior and simple techniques that build attachment, self-control, and courage.
The training will be led by Shana Schmidt, LPC, IMH-E®(III), owner and trainer at Unification Place, LLC. She is an Infant Mental Health Specialist, Conscious Discipline® Certified Instructor, and former executive director of KAIMH (2011-2013).
Conscious Discipline trainings are funded by the Early Childhood Block Grant, a program of the Kansas Children’s Cabinet and Trust Fund, and administered by Hutchinson Community Foundation.
