8 March through 24 May 2017 – Kaua’i

Deborah Burnham will facilitate a Kilauea Parenting Group for parents, grandparents, caregivers and supporters of a healthy community on the island of Kaua’i. The 12 process-oriented sessions will provide the opportunity to explore your own values and wishes for the children and youth of our community. This offers a forum for caregivers to share their wisdom and challenges, to explore their own values, and to increase their knowledge of sensible, practical and positive parenting skills. These will be geared to the ages of those with whom our group members are interacting and may focus on 3-7 years, 8-14 years, and/or 15-24 years.

USA: LVE Workshop for Educators, Counselors and Parents
14-16 July 2017 – Haines Falls, New York

Join us for an inspiring weekend (from 7:30 Friday evening through4:00 p.m. on Sunday) to reflect on values and a paradigm and process that builds relationship, and empowers positive choices and resiliency in young people. Learn about methods that invite the co-creation of a culture of peace and respect, and experience activities that help young people of all ages, from toddlers to young adults, explore and develop universal values and positive social and emotional skills. Living Values Education is a comprehensive values education approach being implemented in more than 60 countries.

The retreat will be held at the beautiful Peace Village Learning and Retreat Center in Haines Falls, New  York.

This workshop is highly recommended for adults who wish to help young people optimally explore and develop values. Please join us to:

reflect on the role values play in your life, schools, communities and the world;

  • learn about the LVE Approach and the process of developing values;
  • refine acknowledgement and active listening skills that allow adults to deal with young people’s resistance more easily and effectively;
  • learn about non-violent discipline methods to help all feel and be safe and respected;
  • experience relaxation/focusing exercises that help young people be more centered and better able to self-regulate;
  • have more than 140 activities to help young people develop 12 universal values and positive intrapersonal and interpersonal social and emotional skills; and
  • be comfortable facilitating a process that builds positive social skills, drastically reduces bullying and has young people resolving issues with the language of values within months, inside and outside of the classroom.

Results:  The most frequent themes noted by educators implementing LVE are positive changes in teacher-student relationships and student-student relationships both inside and outside the classroom.  Educators note an increase in respect, caring, cooperation, motivation, and the ability to solve peer conflicts on the part of the students.  Aggressive behaviors decline as positive social skills and respect increase.  LVE helps educators hone quality teaching skills to create a safe, caring, values-based atmosphere for quality learning.  Young people learn to use the language of values to reflect on challenges and generate positive solutions. Please see our website for research results and success stories.

Parents benefit immensely from this approach and note improved relationships, as well as an understanding of how to help young people be resilient, and develop positive social skills and a love for values. Skills are also shared to help young people deal with bullying.

Facilitator: This LVE workshop will be led by Diane Tillman, Licensed Educational Psychologist, former School Psychologist, MFT, and the primary author of the award-winning LVE series of books. Co-facilitating the retreat: Ed Wondolowski is an Emeritus Professor of Management, Bentley University, and a Director of LVEP, Inc. Natasha Panzer taught and coordinated LVE activities at Mizzentop School, a private K-8 school. Stephanie Keer is the Education Solutions Manager at KonicaMinolta and an adjunct Professor of Psychology, New York University.

Cost:  There will be a $40 charge for the weekend to help cover LVE expenses. For those staying at the retreat center, please plan to make a separate donation for meals and accommodation.
