Ruth has had the privilege of sharing Positive Discipline Solutions’ workshops and presentations with hundreds of childcare and early childhood professionals throughout Alberta and British Columbia. Feedback from these events is always most positive and many attendees comment that the presentation was:
“One of the most enjoyable and informative presentations that they had ever attended on the subject of discipline.”
While there are various workshop topics and content available, all Positive Discipline Solutions’ workshops focus on sharing information and tools that will support teachers and caregivers in creating an environment that:
- Is non-punitive and encouraging to children
- Fosters social emotional development (including the ability to self-regulate)
- Reduces behaviour challengesat the same time.
Ruth independently offers workshops that are geared for childcare and early childhood settings periodically throughout the year in various locations in Alberta and B.C. and she also does “in house” workshops by invitation within various childcare and early childhood settings.
Ruth is also available for conference keynotes and breakout sessions.
Of note to Alberta Childcare & Early Childhood Facilities: A number of Positive Discipline Solutions’ workshops are approved by the Alberta Provincial Government for those who are eligible for Professional Development Funding under the Alberta Child Care Accreditation Funding Program.
Coming Soon! An 8 module online training: “Positive Discipline Solutions for Early Childhood and Childcare Professionals”. This training will provide options for as few as one person to purchase the training or for organizations of various sizes to purchase the training based on number of employees. Check back for more info!
I am excited to attend the training course that Ruth provides so that I can teach this program to others!”
