Popkin, a child and family therapist who is part of the Adlerian school of psychology. Dr. Popkin has designed a series of parenting classes that are being taught all over the world by parent and family educators.

Each Active Parenting parent education workshop is customized for children of different ages, but every class will cover some core effective parenting skills, including:

  • Effective, nonviolent discipline techniques
