Simplicity Parenting is a multi-layered, systems approach for decreasing cumulative stress in children’s and families’ lives.

Research has shown that this comprehensive approach, based on the work and highly acclaimed book Simplicity Parenting by Kim John Payne, M.Ed., is effective in addressing and decreasing a range of clinical and subclinical symptoms, including attention difficulties, hyperactivity, impulsivity, anxiety, difficulties with sleep, and a host of stress-related behavioral and emotional symptoms.

If you are a Care Professional (clinician, social worker, family therapist, educator) please know that we will be offering 6 CEUs ( NASW approved) for this training: a six-hour seminar offered as three, two-hour tele-classes over three consecutive days.

In this seminar, you will learn to:

  • Help families build resiliency in their children
  • Improve specialized treatment and/or care effectiveness by helping to bring balance and calm to child’s home life
  • Enrich your professional practice with new theory and skills

After completion, you will  be invited to join our Care Professionals Forum (private Facebook group) for connection and sharing with others who are bringing Simplicity Parenting into their practices.

Many of our participants have found gaining familiarity with new technology and skills a valuable part of the Seminar experience.

Do you offer On-site Seminars? +
