WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE …. A new book study on “Developing Through Relationships” by Alan Fogel. Many thanks go to Vicki Parnell who will be hosting this book study!
This accessible book explains how individuals develop through their relationships with others. Alan Fogel demonstrates that human development is driven by a social dynamic process called co-regulation—the creative interaction of individuals to achieve a common goal. This book was one of our “hot list” books in the earlier days of RDI and was really helpful in further developing our understanding of RDI and development.
The study will run on line beginning May 30th at 11:30 am CST. Participants can receive CEU credits for attending all the webinars. If they do not attend each webinar, they must respond to the reflection questions embedded in the recordings and submit to Dr Sheely at your date of renewal for re-certification. Please come to the first webinar with the first 3 chapters read. Therefore, don’t delay, get your book right away!

In Part 2 of our obstacles series, we discuss as parents the obstacles we may have to being guided by our consultants in interactions with our children. The parent/ consultant relationship is key but it is not uncommon for parents to need to overcome obstacles themselves in order to be guided. Join us for a discussion parent to parent.
