Parent Effectiveness Training (PET)
My passion is relationships (every conceivable kind) and I have been aware over several different career paths just how damaging flawed communications can be on the wellbeing of individuals, couples, parents and children. I completed a Masters of Counselling and became a sessional academic at USC. The skills from BYB/PET translate into all forms of professional relationships, group work, supervision and volunteer support. I have had over the years many parents repeat the BYB each time I ran it. They felt that their understanding deepened each time and also from the experiences of new comers to the training. Many participants state that: ‘wish they had found this earlier’, discovering who owns the problem is liberating’, ‘self-awareness is more valuable than diamonds’ and learning to communicate from the ‘I’ position is such a valuable skill and readily translates to improved exchanges between parents and children. I am looking forward to utilising this training as I begin to work with very young mothers in Victoria. It compliments my Midwifery and Nursing skills also.
