Conscious Discipline

Conscious Discipline is a comprehensive brain-based, research backed, trauma-informed approach to self-regulation that integrates Social and Emotional Learning, Equitable School/Home Culture and Discipline Practices

Conscious Discipline

Conscious Discipline takes a very different approach to discipline than the way we might have experienced it in our own childhoods. Conscious Discipline is all about connection rather than punishment. The root word of discipline is disciple which means to teach.  Traditional discipline says, ‘Rules govern behaviour’ Conscious Discipline says, ‘Connections & relationships govern behaviour’. In this time of unprecedented uncertainty, anxiety and trauma, there has never been a more appropriate time for us as schools, therapists and educators, to partner with parents to look after the social and emotional needs of our children and to create safe, connected and problem-solving environments.
