For Parents & Professionals

Activating the Best in Children

Learning to help abused, vulnerable children mature into healthy, self-responsible human beings is a profoundly difficult challenge. It demands a true willingness on our parts to not just try and make them behave and make the “right” choices but, instead, to enter into more equal and healing partnerships with our children. This pragmatic, inspirational training goes beneath the labels and diagnoses, settling for nothing less than the arrival of the human being inside the child.


Training Objectives

Helping parents and professionals:

  • Enter into deeper partnerships with children by transitioning from behavioral point, reward and consequence systems into more healing, interactive and co-authored decision-making
  • Focus less on telling children what to do, which elicits either compliance or defiance, and instead focuses on asking great questions, which elicits insight and wisdom within the children
  • Use misbehavior as a “teachable moments” not a punishing ones, where conversation trumps consequences
