Course Description and Goals

This 6-session, 15-hour, online interactive workshop is designed for early childhood educators, teachers, and caregivers who work with children from birth to six years of age. (Parents will also find this workshop helpful; however, the focus is on early childhood education.) Participants will learn to apply the principles and tools of Positive Discipline, an Adlerian research-based philosophy, to working with groups of young children. They will also gain a deeper understanding of how young children learn, the importance of belonging to social and emotional learning, and how best to teach those skills in a classroom or care setting.

  • Create a classroom or care setting where children can develop a sense of belonging and significance based on the importance of contribution and mutual respect.

  • Understand how young children learn and how to adapt teaching to the needs of this age group.

  • Foster essential social and emotional skills to support development and school readiness, and understand behavior and how to guide it in groups of young children.

  • Teach the essential skills for developmentally appropriate participation in class meetings.

  • Learn Positive Discipline and Adlerian concepts for use in the classroom, preschool community, and with parents.

  • Explore the importance of culturally relevant teaching practice in social and emotional learning.
