Parent Effectiveness Training
“World-leading, science-backed parent education workshops
for happy, healthy families in Hong Kong, Macau and the Philippines.”
Parenting is the hardest job in the world, yet it doesn’t come with a manual! Most parenting books and courses promote a one-size-fits-all approach that simply doesn’t work for every parent and every child. We’ve been there; we get it.
You’re unique. Your child's unique. What your family deserves is a unique parenting approach tailored to support healthy connection and communication that meets the needs of every family member.
The brainchild of award-winning psychologist and three-time Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, Dr. Thomas Gordon, Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) is a proven parent education program that has successfully improved parent-child relationships in more than 50 countries for almost 60 years. The skills-based workshops are designed to respectfully apply to different cultures, ages and personal values. What unites parents is a genuine commitment to connect and communicate with their children with respect and authority.
“Let’s work together for a solution that meets your needs and meets my needs. Both of us will win, no one will be a resentful loser.” — No Lose conflict resolution method is also called Method III in P.E.T.
It is based on a very different set of assumptions than the power-based methods of solving conflicts between parent and child such as the authoritative method (parent wins or Method I) and permissive method (child wins or Method II).
In Method III, the needs of the parent and child are considered to be of equal importance. The problem is approached from a needs basis not on solutions. Power is never used except in situations which involve safety and security of the child/parent.
The main advantage of the Method III approach is that it enhances rather than harms the relationship. No one loses; instead both win. Feelings of resentment and unfairness are thus eliminated from problem solving and replaced by mutual respect and concern for the needs of both parent and child.
