LEONARDTOWN, MD – On Tuesday, May 14, 2019, there will be a Conscious Discipline Trauma Workshop from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the Division of Supporting Services for Childcare Providers and Community Partners. The workshop will be presented by Master Conscious Discipline Trainer, Amy Speidel.

Conscious Discipline is comprised of seven powers and skills that support growth in adults first; children second. Skills and structures are designed to foster safety, connection, and self-regulation. Learn the skills to promote a culture of safety, strengthen connections between children and between adults and children, and teach emotional regulation so that children see themselves as capable and resilient problem solvers.
