P.E.T. was created by Dr. Thomas Gordon, award-winning psychologist, three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee and author of Parent Effectiveness Training: The Proven Program for Raising Responsible Children.
P.E.T. was the first parenting program to stress the ineffectiveness and destructiveness of any and all kinds of punishment and to teach parents effective alternatives to punishment. The course was a pioneer in fostering self-discipline as an alternative to power-based externally imposed discipline. Dr. Gordon has been called the “father of parent training.”
Structured and very practical course with a series of workshop sessions for up to 24 hours.
All workshops include hands-on practice, instructor presentations,
workbook exercises and demonstrations
Speaks and private courses can be arranged for a company, school or group of friends
