The Creative Family Counseling Team offers educational in-services, presentations, and trainings for businesses and organizations who work with the public. These in-services are offered by Clinical Therapists on the Creative Family Counseling Team and focus on topics such as mental health, healthy relationships, stress management, effective communication, parenting, caring for children in the school setting, and childhood emotional awareness, resilience, & management.
The Creative Family Counseling Clinical Team draws heavily from their background as both child therapists and as Certified Positive Discipline Educators. Positive Discipline is an evidence-based philosophy and approach to working with and raising children, which can be applied in the home, childcare, and school settings. The Positive Discipline curriculum fits well with educational approaches such as Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and other progressive educational philosophies which are skill based and developmentally informed.
In-service providers can help provide education on the topics listed above, as well as provide training in the application of easily implemented parenting and classroom management skills. These skills are applicable to children from birth through teenage years and will build mutual respect, dignity, and interdependence in the children with whom the organization works.
Because Creative Family Counseling values experiential learning, in-services are typically taught in a fun, collaborative manner where participants get to “try on” the various tools being taught, as so much of learning is in the “doing.”
