How it works....
We offer a 6-week Virtual Interactive Book Club at the moment and our in-person group classes are suspended during COVID-19 until further notice. The Virtual Book Club is Facilitated by a Master P.E.T. trainer. We meet once a week on Zoom to discuss 2-3 chapters. We repeat the Virtual Book Club multiple times throughout the year and at multiple different times during the week. Each Virtual Book Club follows the same content, just on different dates and at different times. Choose the location and time that work best for your schedule.
The Virtual Book Club have around 8 participants and are purposely small so that we can communicate effectively online and have time for individual questions. The cost of the Virtual Book Club is $75 for individuals, not including the updated 2019 P.E.T. textbook. You can order a copy at any book seller or on our website.
If the Virtual Book Club Schedule doesn't work for you, we also offer Virtual private parent coaching.
What You Will Learn
We Don't Blame, We Train!
Parent Effectiveness Training workshops are judgment free. We don't blame, we don't shame, and we don't mess with your values. We are simply here to help you acquire very practical communication and conflict resolution skills so you can feel more confident as a parent, instill responsibility and create a nurturing family environment in which your child can thrive. Some have said P.E.T. is life-changing, but there is no magic to it. It's like learning how to drive a car, it takes time and practice. We work with any skill level, with parents of children all ages. We encourage you to make mistakes and have fun while learning. Come check out one of our group parenting classes for free at a location convenient for you!

Updated 2019 Version
If you want to take the P.E.T. class by yourself, it will go a bit faster. In that case, I will come to your house for 2 hour (instead of 3 hour) sessions and we will go through the material together at your own speed and do all the practice exercises. The cost will be $85 per hour. If you want to ask a friend and do it together and share the cost, that also works. We schedule a time and date that fit your schedule. We can schedule one 2 hour session and see how you like it, before we make additional appointments.
