Positive Discipline in Everyday Parenting

Facilitator Training

 offered by Alberta Home Visitation Network Association. (AHVNA)

 This innovative and empowering approach to child discipline was developed by Joan Durrant Ph.D. (University of Manitoba) for Save the Children Sweden in 2007. It is relevant to all parents of children from infancy to adolescence. Early research indicates a significant positive change in parental beliefs and knowledge, attitudes toward punishment, and increased sense of parenting competence. An ongoing research agenda is underway. This training presents the opportunity to be an active participant in this promising program. Positive discipline is:

  • Non-violent
  • Solution-focused
  • Respectful
  • Based on child development principles

Note: This program can be delivered to parents in groups or on an individual basis.

Ideally, participants will:

  • Have completed a Positive Discipline for Everyday parenting program
  • Work with parents/caregivers as part of their employment position
  • Have completed post-secondary education in a related field
  • Support the idea of ending physical and emotional punishment of children
  • Be knowledgeable about child development and adult learning
  • Be skilled and experienced in group facilitation
  • Be able to run a Positive Discipline for Everyday parenting (PDEP) group within 6 months of the training.
