parenting, values, child

On this page you will see a list of online P.E.T. Book Clubs, online P.E.T. Classes (Regular and Refresher) and in-person classes. All book clubs, in-person and online classes are led by certified P.E.T. Instructors trained by Gordon Training. Want to learn about the P.E.T. program? Click here

How the Online Book Club Works

These are led by certified instructors–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.

NEW!  How the Online Class Works

Due to the ongoing pandemic, GTI made the recent decision (January, 2022) to allow the P.E.T. Class to be taught online.  These are led by certified instructors–dates and times are listed on the calendar and to enroll, click on their name to reach them directly.  The online class offers the same content and length as the in-person class.

Please view the calendar to find dates and times that work for you and you can contact the instructor directly to enroll or to ask questions.  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. Master Facilitator:  family@gordontraining.com or 800.628.1197.

The instructor(s) contact info is hyperlinked next to each book club or class date. Please click on the link to contact them and/or to join the club or class. 

Please note the time zones for the online book clubs and classes: 

ET = Eastern Time; CT = Central Time; MT = Mountain Time; PT = Pacific Time; CET = Central European Time. EET = Eastern European Time.
