COMMUNICATION SKILLS THAT REALLY WORK

ABOUT P.E.T.

PARENT EFFECTIVENESS TRAINING

Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) was created by award-winning psychologist and three-time Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, Dr. Thomas Gordon in 1962. It is an eight-week group workshop for any person seeking better relationships with their children, partners, friends, or colleagues. 

You will learn practical communication skills that can help you become compassionate without being permissive or assertive and without resorting to punishment or reward.

Unfortunately, children don’t come with an instruction manual. And, being a parent doesn’t always mean that you instinctively know what to do. Whether you’re the parent of a toddler or a teenager, you know that parenting can be challenging–even overwhelming at times. 


We are here to help you learn practical communication and conflict resolution skills that will help you feel more confident as a parent. We don't blame, we don't shame, and we don't mess with your values. Click here to meet our team. We have certified instructors across South Africa and abroad to choose from.

Although, some people have described P.E.T. as life-changing, 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 of all ages, and you are encouraged to make mistakes and have fun while learning. Click here to contact us via the form below.
