Kirsten LOVES teaching all kinds of workshops, especially ones that involve Play, Pillow Fights, and Wrestling. She is proud of her Peer Education Parenting Curriculum that she helped develop and brought into the prison system last year. She has worked extensively with preschool staff and also parents who have substance abuse issues. All of her work is based on the principles of Parenting by Connection, which she believes to be nothing short of Peace Movement in Action. Listen as she explains Staylistening (Kirsten Nottleson).
