NEW: Conscious Discipline Parenting Education Curriculum Yields Positive Outcomes
In a research study by ChildTrends, Conscious Discipline’s parenting education curriculum was found to improve parenting knowledge and skills, increase parents’ ability to manage their own emotions and respond to children’s challenging behaviors, and improve emotional management and behavior in children. Notably, parents reported using Conscious Discipline skills and strategies more consistently six to eight weeks after parenting classes than immediately after classes concluded. Parents reported feeling happier, less frustrated and more interested in connecting with their children. Both directors and parents noted a positive change in the school-home connection.

Conflict in the Classroom: An Opportunity to Teach and Learn
By Lina Paredes, Conscious Discipline Certified Instructor
My eyes look up as I try to finish correcting students´ math quizzes. As a few of them wait in line to receive their feedback, I notice two students approaching my desk, both of them looking upset, nervous, and affected. One of them holds a purple pencil sharpener in her hand while the other one says, ¨Ms. Lina, she took my pencil sharpener and it´s mine!¨ This is probably one of the most frequent situations you´ll find yourself …

Conscious Discipline Methodology
Evidence-based Social Emotional Learning and Classroom Management Best Practices
Conscious Discipline is an evidence-based, trauma-informed approach. It is recognized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP), and received high ratings in 8 of 10 categories in a Harvard analysis of the nation’s top 25 social-emotional learning programs. The Harvard study’s authors say, “Conscious Discipline provides an array of behavior management strategies and classroom structures that teachers can use to turn everyday situations into learning opportunities.”
Our core methodology is based on four essential components that are scientifically and practically designed for success:
Brain State Model
The Conscious Discipline Brain State Model recognizes three basic brain / body / mind states likely to produce certain behaviors. Intentional, state- specific responses enable access to advanced skills.
Seven Powers for Conscious Adults
The seven powers create a shift in the way adults see conflict so we can maintain composure and consciously respond to difficult situations. Adults’ ability to self-regulate is the precursor to teaching children social-emotional skills.
Creating the School Family
The School Family increases connections between adults and children at all levels, ensuring optimal development for all. A School Family culture is built through consistent modeling of routines, rituals and structures.
Seven Skills of Discipline
These seven skills transform everyday discipline issues into teachable moments, equipping children with the social-emotional and communication skills needed to manage themselves, resolve conflict and develop healthy behavior.
