This training will address the need for culturally responsive disciplinary practices as a method of dismantling inequities in educational settings. Discussions within the field of education have begun to examine the existing “Discipline Gap” and the long term implications for diverse students and communities.

Following current research, practical strength-based techniques will be provided employing knowledge of child development, learning theory, and mental health.
