Get Trained

The PAX Tools Workshop is a parent and caregiver training that utilizes evidence-based “kernels,” or strategies, for use with children in the home. 

Pax Tools:

  • Promotes the development of self-regulation
  • Reduces conflict
  • Decreases problematic behavior
  • Improves relationships

Certified PAX Educators from Mental Health America of the Heartland can travel to your school or organization and present in-person or virtually by Zoom.
