This year, we’re proud to offer an extended Pre-Conference to our parents looking to get started early! Christine Moers and Jim Kling are both back, and will both present in the morning (9:00AM-12:00PM) and afternoon (1:00PM-4:00PM).

Take a look below to see the sessions that will be available at this year’s Pre-Conference.

You’ve Got This!” with Christine Moers

Christine Moers, therapeutic parent and author of the blog “Welcome to My Brain“, will be facilitating both a morning and afternoon session at this year’s Pre-Conference.

In addition to empowering you to think on your feet, you will have the opportunity to “pick Christine’s brain” on her own parenting strategies. You will leave with a few ideas to use in the moments when you feel stuck,  and learn her secrets for smiling and laughing through the challenges.

Each “You’ve Got This!” Pre-Conference session has limited availability so that the experience can remain small and the conversations can evolve based on the needs of the group. Be sure to reserve your spot early so you don’t miss out on this opportunity!

“When Love Doesn’t Conquer All” with Jim Kling

Jim Kling, behavioral consultant with Alternative Teaching, Inc., will be presenting all-new material on the challenges of behavior management. His interactive training will provide you with effective, concrete parenting techniques to help you increase the structure of your home. You CAN regain control over yourself and your home with his approach!!

You will not only leave the workshop with successful, new parenting skills, you will also get well-deserved TLC and strength from Jim.  He understands that parents with children and teens who have severe behavior problems are essentially experiencing domestic violence. This upside-down domestic violence situation (children abusing family) isn’t recognized by the community at large – most people only think of domestic violence as occurring to children and women.  But Jim gets it – some parents experience domestic violence as well – and can provide the empathy and direction you both need and deserve!

Jim will offer two sessions – one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The first session will review the basic techniques and how/why they work. The second session will expand on these techniques and also allow opportunities to learn how to identify and problem-solve behavioral issues. Attendance at the morning session or attendance at a workshop of Jim’s at a prior Parenting in SPACE conference is required for the afternoon session. Seating is limited to 50 for both the morning and afternoon sessions, so register early!
