Conscious Discipline Announces Dates and Opens Registration for SEL Summer Institutes in
ORLANDO, Fla. (Dec. 5, 2019) – Conscious Discipline, a comprehensive social and emotional learning (SEL) provider that combines trauma-informed care, discipline, self-regulation and school culture into one integrated process, today announced dates and location for its 2020 Summer Institutes.
Conscious Discipline’s premier event, the weeklong 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 event blends interactive lectures, modeling of SEL skills and techniques, and daily hands-on practice in a small-group setting.
“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.”
Attendees learn the seven powers of self-regulation and the seven skills of discipline, equipping adults with the ability to remain calm and choose an effective response to conflict. Through the Conscious Discipline Brain State Model, they learn to recognize three brain states in children and adults, and how to help children shift into the optimal state for learning and problem-solving. Event facilitators model the creation of a caring, cooperative and inclusive School Family and teach attendees to bring the same skills and structures to their own schools. Outcomes of implementing Conscious Discipline include a positive shift in school culture, reduced discipline referrals, improved academics and test scores, increased teaching time and low staff turnover.
“The Conscious Discipline Institute was executed at such a high level, and I appreciated that the information was evidence-based and rooted in neuroscience,” said 2019 attendee Kristen Balhoff. “I was told by a colleague that it was going to be life-changing, and it was. It has significantly impacted how I teach and interact with others.”
Registration for Conscious Discipline events now features both Individual and Team options. Team Registration, intended for groups of two or more, offers helpful tools for schools and districts bringing groups to events, including a more convenient checkout process and the ability to invite attendees and manage seats within the Team.
The 2020 Summer Institute schedule consists of three sessions. Session A focuses on SEL implementation with infants and toddlers, while the other sessions are intended for a general audience.
