The positive parenting workshops offer tools of nonviolent communication for parents to establish a strong relationship with their children based on mutual respect. It will help the child build a strong foundation of emotional and social intelligence.
The 3 positive parenting courses are tailored to the development stages of the child. They give the parents practical and efficient tools to help them to tackle everyday situations in the spirit of positive parenting. 3 types of positive parenting course for parents with small children (0-6), children (6-12) and teens (12-18).
The “Jealousy: conflict and rivalry between siblings” workshop focuses on relationships and conflict management between siblings. Finally, the workshop for early childhood professionals offers a programme of positive communication created for the needs of professionals working with small children.
The interactive program created by the French organisation l’Atelier des Parents is based on the new developments in neurosciences, emotional intelligence and nonviolent communication. By learning about the different stages of the development of the child [small children (0-6), children (6-12) teens (12-18)] their brain, the parents can better understand their child’s behaviour. The approach taken from the nonviolent communication and positive psychology puts the emphasis on cooperation, on mutual respect and communication techniques that promote understanding. You can learn how to listen to your children so they feel genuinely understood and how to express your needs and concerns.
During the courses we use a workbook published by l’Atelier des parents. The book contains 7 chapters (in case of the course „Jealousy between siblings” 4 chapters), each of them articulating around a main subject. In each chapter there is a theoretical part which we explore through exercices, role plays, demonstrations by the trainer. Even the difficult concepts of neurosciences are presented in an easily understandable and playful way. The interactive and playful exercises help to consolidate the different techniques. The role plays help the parents better understand their child’s perspective.
