Introduction to Conscious Discipline

If you’re new to Conscious Discipline and want to learn more, this Introduction to Conscious Discipline is the workshop for you! Conscious Discipline is a trauma-informed, evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL) program that integrates discipline, school culture, and SEL into one seamless process. It’s not a kit that you have to cram into an already packed schedule. Instead, Conscious Discipline empowers you to teach SEL skills through everyday interactions. At this workshop, you’ll learn evidence-based strategies for creating an optimal school environment, plus immediately usable tools to remain calm during moments of chaos.
