Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.)


Dr. Thomas Gordon’s Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) class is the pioneering program that has helped millions of parents around the world.

Whether you’re the parent of a toddler or a teenager, you know that parenting can be challenging – even overwhelming at times. Unfortunately, children don’t come with an instruction manual.

Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) offers proven and effective communication skills that really work. When they use these skills, parents are amazed with the dramatic improvement both in their families and in all their relationships.

This program was created by award-winning psychologist and three-time Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, Dr. Thomas Gordon in 1962. A major revision of the P.E.T. program was completed in July, 2006 with up-to-date examples, new content and more.
