This three-session program, based on Powerful Non-Defensive Communication (PNDC), will support parents, grandparents, and caregivers as they navigate how to use authority wisely; set firm, nurturing limits; and have great talks with children and teens.

In this “flipped classroom” setting, participants prepare for each session by listening to/reading/watching materials at home, then attend sessions where this material is discussed. For more information, read this flyer
