Leading social and emotional learning provider to host nine satellite events in the United States and Mexico 

ORLANDO, Fla. (January 28, 2020)

Conscious Discipline, a trauma-responsive, comprehensive social and emotional learning (SEL) provider that combines evidence-based practices in SEL, school climate, classroom management and self-regulation, today announced nine satellite locations for its 2020 Summer Institutes. The satellite events are located throughout the United States and in Mexico.

Conscious Discipline’s annual Summer Institute provides an in-depth introduction to the adult mindset shift and skillset upgrade that is required to effectively implement SEL in a classroom, school or district. The program uniquely emphasizes that adults must learn SEL skills first before they can effectively teach these skills to children. The in-demand event blends interactive lectures, modeling of SEL skills and techniques, and daily hands-on practice in a small group setting. In 2020, two main sessions in Orlando will be led by Dr. Becky Bailey, the creator of Conscious Discipline and an award-winning author, teacher and pioneer in SEL. Conscious Discipline Master Instructor Jill Molli will facilitate a third main session alongside video teaching from Dr. Bailey.

Satellite locations offer a compelling registration value and allow more attendees to experience Summer Institute at convenient locations around the U.S. and in Mexico. Each Institute Satellite is virtually connected with the main Institute sessions in Orlando, receiving direct video teaching from Dr. Bailey and sharing real-time, engaging interactions with other Satellite locations. Master Instructors facilitate additional training on-site, supported by a team of Certified Instructors and Helpers.

“Summer Institute is an intensive learning opportunity that challenges participants to reflect on their beliefs and past experiences,” said Conscious Discipline Master Instructor Jill Molli. “We bring SEL concepts to life throughout the week with real examples, informed practice and personal connections.”
