The workshop is aimed at teaching parents how to help their children identify their negative emotions and how to change those to positive ones.
"A resilient child knows how to cope with their problems and solve their emotions," VonFlue said.
She hopes to teach parents how to guide their children from an emotional state of mind, to a problem-solving one, while incorporating their style of parenting.
"Through behavior modification and the right counseling, children can change," VonFlue said.
A master timeline therapist and a master in the neuro-linguistic program, VonFlue, who has a master's degree in education, uses techniques based on the latest brain research. A typical counseling session with her can last from one to three hours.
"I guarantee that the issues can be gone in that time," she said.
VonFlue was born and raised in the Imperial Valley and was on the El Centro Elementary School District board before moving to Salinas, where she now lives. She has been a behavioral specialist since 1994 and has her own practice.
Although VonFlue specializes in working with youths, her practice is not limited to young people.
The workshop is free and open to the public. It will be at the Grace Lutheran Church parish hall in El Centro at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
