Here is more information on the Instructor Training Workshop, instructor certification, and more–but first, listen to what this instructor has to say!

“Life changing experience. What a fantastic investment in one’s life! Highly, highly recommended!” – Marie L.

“Dr. Gordon’s influence in my life has been substantial. My parents took a P.E.T. course in the 70’s and raised our family using his methods. I am ever grateful for their decision, as I was always treated as an equal, listened to, and actively participated in solving problems.

The approach instilled a strong sense of responsibility in us at a very young age, which included the ability to see the world from my parents’ point of view. The method provided our family a model for communication that preserved the quality and openness of our relationship throughout my childhood and teen years, making life easier for us and for our parents. My parents did not have to resort to blame, punishment, or force to solve family problems. I loved growing up in this environment and feel passionate about helping others create it as well, which is why I decided to become a P.E.T. trainer.”  – Instructor

“I got certified last year and that week was one of the BEST in my life. Since then, I have gotten to live my dream of sharing these concrete, paradigm shifting skills with 24 important and special people. I love my calling – do it!”  – Catherine B.

“Just do it. It will change your life!” – Christa W.
