Not currently scheduled.

A workshop for parents and professionals who live or work with children with autism spectrum or sensory processing disorders or other developmental differences.

Do you have a child who is especially sensitive, stubborn, or strong-willed? Has your child been diagnosed with an autism spectrum or sensory processing disorder?

TANTRUMS, MELTDOWNS, SOBBING, POUTING, AND FOOT-STOMPING RAGES: STRATEGIES THAT CAN HELP 
(for parents of kids ages 3 to 6)

Wed., Feb. 8, 2016
7 to 9 PM
Parents Place of Marin, San Rafael
Early-bird pricing now available
Online registration here

If your kid has ever "lost it" over something – or nothing! – this workshop is for you. Come learn strategies you can use the next time something shockingly awful – like when you did a buckle for a child who wanted to “do it myself,” or you offered the “wrong” color shirt-- leads to crying, screaming, or fist-pounding tantrums. During this experiential, fun workshop, you will practice helpful skills with other calm adults before returning to the challenges of raising actual children.

Are you getting worn down by your children's fighting or complaining, comparisons or competition, or other child-like behavior?
Do you find yourself using threats, bribes or a raised voice, though you swore you never would?
Are you committed to raising your children to become respectful, ethical adults, but wondering how to manage it all and keep your own sanity?
Have you never signed up for a How To Talk workshop because you can't commit to a multi-week series, or evening workshops don't fit with your schedule?
 
Come learn a proven approach to enhance cooperation and good will, strengthen character and self-esteem, and build respectful, compassionate relationships. In a supportive environment, you will reflect on your goals and values, practice specific skills in role-plays and exercises, and learn how to communicate clearly and consistently with your children in the face of normal, everyday challenges. You will leave with practical strategies that you can implement immediately to improve communication and discipline and enhance your relationships at home.

REFRESHER AND REUNION WORKSHOPS for workshop graduates

For those with preschool and elementary-age children:
Tues., Dec. 6, 6:45 -8:45 PM
Private home, Brisbane
 
For those with tweens and teens:
Fri., Dec. 2
9:30 to 11:30 AM
Private home, Tiburon
 
Could you use some strategies for the new situations and challenges that have come up since you last took a workshop?
Are you finding it hard to remember the skills you learned when you're in the heat of the moment?
 

Many workshop graduates say they wish there were a way to follow up after the workshop has ended.  Now there is!  The Refresher and Reunion workshops are open to graduates of any one or more workshops by Julie King.  We will address your issues and challenges from home (or the park, or school, or...). The group serves as a place to refresh yourself and further explore the skills and philosophy we have studied, as well as a place to get inspiration and concrete ideas for specific situations.
