PETbook_webParent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T)

Whether you’re the parent of a toddler or a teenager, you know that parenting can be challenging, even overwhelming at times. Unfortunately, children don’t come with an instruction manual. And, being a parent doesn’t always mean that you automatically or instinctively know what to do.

Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) offers proven communication skills that really work. P.E.T. was created by award-winning psychologist and three-time Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Dr. Thomas Gordon. This intensive, proven workshop is taught only by instructors certified by Gordon Training International. The workshop includes hands-on practice, brief instructor presentations, workbook exercises, demonstrations, small group discussion and at-home application.
