P.E.T. Workshops (Online/In-Person)


parenting, values, child

“The content is incredibly valuable and the Instructor’s real-life stories brought the content and methods to life. Particularly, the Instructor’s focus on bringing it all back to building a life-long love relationship was invaluable to me, and that awareness if life changing for me. So profound!” -Elizabeth P.


“This has been the most influential class I have taken in a long time! (I’d say in my life but no one would believe me!)” -Joanna K.


“The course was well organized and covered the material in a thorough, approachable way. I really appreciated the real-life examples and stories that brought the material to life.” -Kristen A.


This course has helped me tremendously with more effective communication with my child. I have become more aware of certain confrontive scenarios and am able to apply the appropriate response. Most importantly, the skills I learned in this course, specifically Active Listening, has drastically improved my relationship with my child. My child has become calmer and is able and willing to share his thoughts and experiences with me. -Y. Jia


This is invaluable to me. My entire family expects me to be the problem SOLVER. I now have the tools to help them solve their own problems. – Joanie M.


How the Online Class Works

The online P.E.T. Classes are led by instructors certified by Gordon Training International.  The dates and times are listed on the calendar below.  To enroll, click on their name to reach them directly for questions on pricing and/or to enroll.  The online class offers the same content and length as the in-person class.

You can also contact us with questions you have or if you’d like to set up a private book club or online class with a P.E.T. Instructor:  family@gordontraining.com or 800.628.1197.

Please click on the link to contact the instructor directly and/or to join the club or class. 


How the Online Book Club Works

These are led by instructors certified by Gordon Training International.  The dates and times are listed on the calendar and to enroll, click on their name to reach them directly.  The length of each book club meeting varies from instructor to instructor, hence the number of meetings will vary.  There are 16 chapters in the book and each chapter has questions that will be posed by the instructor to the group.  Members don’t need to read the entire book before the club starts–chapters are assigned before each meeting. The discussions will be about the concepts and ideas found in the book.  This is not an online P.E.T. class but a deep dive into the P.E.T. methods and philosophy.
