Deepening Our Simplicity Parenting Support: For Simplicity Parenting Coaches, Group Leader and Care Professionals

With Kim John Payne

May 18 - 19, 2023

This is a unique opportunity for Simplicity Parenting, Parenting Coaches, Group Leader and Care Professionals to gather together in a world renown retreat center and attend a workshop led by Kim John Payne.
In this workshop Kim will facilitate an exploration in how to meet the changing needs of the parents we support, either in Group Leader led gatherings, individual clinical or educational settings.  We will share our experiences, hear how this approach has been adapted and learn from each others struggles and successes.  Most of all this gathering aims to have each person leave having added vital strategies to the toolbox, meet with other like minded practitioners and with a renewed sense of the urgent importance of supporting families to live a simple and balanced life.
Please note that this registration is open to Coaches, Group Leaders and Care Professionals of Simplicity Parenting only**.  If you are a Simplicity Parenting practitioner and are interested in attending both segments of the event please register for both sections. We recommend that you book both portions at the same time to ensure room availability and continuity. 
**Please Note: This applies to Simplicity Parenting Family Life, Discipline & Guidance and Emotional Self Regulation Coaches, Group Leaders and Care Professionals
