Jonathan Eastman has a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Early Childhood Education and a Master’s of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy. He has taught Pre-K to 2nd grade and has worked for many years as a children’s entertainer, storyteller and games-master. Jonathan employs that playful dynamic of sharing Conscious Discipline® and cooperative play activities with school staff, parent groups and organizations that value social-emotional intelligence. What he loves most is to engage with children. He is a master trainer with the Palm Beach County Early Childhood Registry and a program consultant for the Fatherhood Task Force of South Florida.
Jonathan has been a Conscious Discipline Certified Instructor since 2007. He and his partner Katja von Elbe formed Brainheart Guidance Inc. to provide teacher and parent training, individual and family consulting and game sessions with children and adults for team building or simply for fun. Living and working in Miami, he connects with ease and deep interest with people of different cultures and backgrounds. This ability contributes to the enthusiastic reception of Conscious Discipline in the schools of the Pacific Island Republic of Palau, co-presenting with Katja von Elbe in the spring and summer of 2017.×
