I have been teaching PET and TET since 1977 all over Australia as well as Papua New Guinea. Over the years, I have developed a PET course for Young parents with Children aged between 0 and 6 years, for single-parents, and pregnant teenagers.Once I discovered PET in 1977, it has remained one of the most productive and exciting things in my repertoire. I am always looking for better and more interesting ways of teaching this course, and to apply the skills to contemporary issues that parents are facing today. People often comment on the realism in the role play scenarios offered in the training and can hear their own children come through. ‘We only had this same situation occur two days ago’ said a dad. I travel around Australia, training teachers to address the growing problem of School Bullying in an educational manner, as well as providing parents with a deeper understanding as to 'why children bully.' I authored a parent and teacher resource titled 'Why We Bully' which is the result of over 5,000 lessons with children and teenagers over the years. I have sought to apply PET and TET skills to the many contemporary issues facing parents and teachers of today, and developing these Effectiveness Training courses to address these issues. Hence, this PET programme, which was originally development just over 50 years ago, remains as relevant today as it did in 1962.I am able to travel to the outback to offer PET courses to isolated communities.
