Known as “Dr. Dave” on campus and across the country, Dave Schramm is an associate professor and family life extension specialist at Utah State University in the department of Human Development and Family Studies. After graduating with his Ph.D. from Auburn University, he worked as a professor at the University of Missouri for nine years.

Shortly after arriving at USU in 2016, he was appointed by Governor Herbert to serve on Utah’s Commission on Marriage and he now serves as the faculty director of the Commission. He appears regularly on television on Fox 13’s “The Place” and he shares tips and videos on social media and YouTube to help individuals, parents, and couples thrive in their life journeys.

From British Columbia to Beijing, China, and from St. Louis to San Diego, Dr. Dave has given over 500 presentations, classes, and workshops to a variety of audiences, including the United Nations and a TEDx talk in Florida.

Dr. Dave has contributed significantly to a 100% free app for parents that was just released, created and distributed by Impact Suite and Malouf. It’s called Raise, and it’s an app to help parents with all the technology questions they have, from cyberbullying to balancing screentime and inappropriate content. You can find it on the app store by searching the two words: Raise Parenting. FREE! It’s a game changer.

Conscious Discipline Parenting Curriculum

Bear River Head Start is excited to use Conscious Discipline as our research-based parenting curriculum! Conscious Discipline can help build on parents’ knowledge and offer parents/guardians the opportunity to practice parenting skills that help promote their child’s learning and development at home and in the classroom.

We offer parenting workshops as well as individualized information about Conscious Discipline. BRHS also has a parent lending library that can be checked out. Please ask your Family Advocate for more information.
