Teacher Professional Development Event in Orlando, Florida: Conscious Discipline Institute

“Welcome to the beginning of an amazing journey that will transform your life as an educator. During this seven-day experience, we are going to create a community based on safety, connection, and problem-solving.”
– Dr. Becky Bailey, Author & Creator of Conscious Discipline

Do you dream of a healthy school culture that supports connection, safety, holistic wellness, achievement, and growth for all? We will help you be the change you want to see! Our teacher event in Orlando, Florida, is a week-long professional development event designed to provide educators, administrators, mental health professionals, social workers, child advocates, and parents with the skills and mindsets they need to create a school climate that cultivates success and proactive self-regulation in both students and staff.

This Conscious Discipline Institute goes far beyond your average educator gathering. Join us in Orlando, Florida, to enjoy an immersive, hands-on experience that will equip you with proven, actionable strategies for overcoming barriers and sparking lasting transformations within yourself and your school community.

With over 25 years of active growth under our belt, Conscious Discipline has fulfilled a level of fieldwork that few other programs can match. In a Harvard analysis of America’s top 25 emotional and social learning programs, the authors stated: “Conscious Discipline provides an array of behavior management strategies and classroom structures teachers can use to turn everyday situations into learning opportunities.” Conscious Discipline scored the highest possible score in 8 of the 10 categories in the study.” Better yet, our evidence-based, trauma-responsive approach to wellness and achievement for the entire institution aligns with ESSER and other funding sources for schools.

Our teacher events never fail to sell out quickly, so act fast and register today!

Here's What You'll Learn at Our Teacher Conference in Orlando, Florida


Millions have harnessed the metamorphic power of Conscious Discipline to reduce problem behaviors, boost student achievement, promote mind-body wellness, elevate school climate, and build a stronger, happier community where everyone feels safe, heard, and appreciated. You will learn the ins and outs of Conscious Discipline to create a success story of your own!


The Brain State Model helps us understand the science that drives behavior so we can better understand the “why” behind the feelings and reactions of ourselves and others. This shifts our mindset, enabling us to interpret behavior with compassion and the awareness that it is communication of internal chaos, confusion, or calm. This leads to greater self-regulation, a crucial quality in creating an environment that is safe and stable for children.


Being capable of regulating our own emotions, thoughts, and actions is the cornerstone for successful leadership, especially when it involves children who feel and perform best with a sense of safety and trust. The Seven Powers of Conscious Adults will help you become present, composed, and responsive to the needs of yourself and the children in your care. These powers open the door to an integrated executive brain state, giving us more control over impulsive or reactive tendencies. In turn, this helps us approach classroom management and discipline with awareness and emotional intelligence. Paired with the Seven Skills of Discipline, we can transform power struggles, defiance, bullying, aggression, and other indicators of tumultuous mental states into teaching opportunities that lead to lasting impact.


Discover how to bully-proof your school through emotional intelligence and a sense of belonging. The School Family model’s objective is to nurture a safe, healthy, positive school climate where intrinsic motivation, connection, and genuine helpfulness blossom naturally. You will learn the twelve classroom structures that are key to building inclusive, compassionate, aggression-free environments where learning and success thrive.
