Jane Nelsen


In a world filled with countless parenting and teaching methodologies, Positive Discipline stands out as a holistic approach that fosters mutual respect, understanding, and long-term growth. Whether you’re a parent navigating the challenges of raising children or an educator striving to create a nurturing classroom environment, this session promises to be a transformative experience.

Beyond the session, you’ll be equipped with tools and insights that can be seamlessly integrated into your daily interactions with children.



Jane Nelsen is the author of the Positive Discipline Series and co-founder of a worldwide training program, through the Positive Discipline Association, that has certified thousands of Positive Discipline Facilitators in over 70 countries. The original book, written in 1981, was the product of Jane’s deep gratitude for the changes she was able to make as a parent of 7 children after learning the philosophy of Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs in her college class in Child Development and Family Relations. Since that time, Jane has authored or co-authored many books, tool cards, and training manuals. Enthusiasm continues to grow from interest on the part of parents, teachers, couples and business leaders who have experienced stronger relationships as a result of training in Positive Discipline.

Jane continues to inspire people around the world with her down to earth examples of how to create and maintain respectful relationships in life. She is now the grandmother of 22 and the great grandmother of 15 and counting.
