Virtual Training: Community Colleges of Spokane
With Vicky Hepler
This course provides an introduction to Conscious Discipline and skills such as active calming and noticing for encouragement. It also explores how to use the Safe Place, the Feeling Buddies Curriculum, and Baby Doll Circle Time. Participants will learn the three keys for success when teaching self-regulation: teachable moments, the Safe Place, and the Feeling Buddies Curriculum. They will review the D.N.A. process and how to use this process to encourage self-regulation in teachable moments, learn how to create and use a Safe Place that meets the developmental needs of children, and discover how to teach children the five steps of self-regulation using the Feeling Buddies. The course will also introduce Baby Doll Circle Time and explain why it is such an important tool to support the development of attachment, attunement, and social play. Participants will learn practical tips, clear up common misunderstandings, and have the opportunity to participate in practice lessons.
