My training as a parent coach through the PCI set in motion for me a radically invigorating process of professional renewal and personal transformation. I continue to be inspired by the marvelous synthesis of theories, ideas, resources and practical strategies that characterize the PCI coaching model and render it so effective in working with parents today. I received everything I needed to create my own coaching practice and to coach well. No detail was missed and the opportunities for continuing support and development from the PCI are unparalleled.
Thank you so much for this incredible opportunity to focus on what I care about more than anything in the world—parenting—and to actually affect families in a way I was not able to before my PCI journey. You have given me a tremendous gift! I promise to treasure it and use it carefully as long as I possibly can.
The Parent Coach Certification® Training Program is genius. It impacts students’ personal lives forever, while thoroughly preparing them for a successful career in parent coaching. It sets the standard by being graduate-level and University accredited. Its stellar reputation supports its highly qualified graduates. But by far the content is its greatest attribute. The training helped me grow personally and create the life I’ve always wanted—a work-at-home career as a parent coach. Obtaining Parent Coach Certification® was one of the best decisions of my life
I love how the all readings complement one another and also ask us to think about life. As a Nurse Practitioner in a busy clinic working with families I have found using Appreciative Inquiry and Living Systems as a very important tool/strategy/framework for helping my families find creative and long lasting solutions to their parenting dreams. Gloria, thank you for being so creative and living your dream, and helping others to live theirs!
I am struck with how much I have learned through my study at the PCI. When a client thanks me for my ‘amazing parent coaching,’ I am naturally honored to receive such a compliment. But often I think the credit really goes to the PCI instructors for teaching me so well and to Gloria DeGaetano for having the courage and the energy to create this program. Thank you for inviting me to be a part of it.
The PCI’s curriculum exceeded my expectations. The lessons, supplemental readings and assignments are intellectually challenging and powerfully provoking. Each course builds upon the last, reinforcing the theoretical framework, making this approach to parent coaching most compelling. The people are real gems—my life is so much richer as a result of participating in this wonderful program.
PCI was a fantastic journey and better than I had hoped for. I can’t tell you how many times I thought about all your hard work, Gloria, and was so grateful. I began a practice a few months ago now where I get up a couple hours earlier than I used to in the morning in order to sit quietly with some coffee and read the books that we touched on in Course One…the instruction, our cohort and the content of the program was just superb. Many thanks!
I am so glad I read that article in Southwest Airlines in-flight magazine about Gloria DeGaetano and her fabulous parent coaching program. Meeting Gloria, the PCI instructors, and the others going through the training has really changed me. I now feel I have found the path I want to be on…after so many years of wandering and wondering. Thank you!
The Parent Coach Certification® Training Program was more than I could dream. It transformed my life and continues to inspire me. I am grateful to have worked with so many wonderful people. It was a rich and rewarding experience…and I am honored to be a part of it.
One runs the risk of effusiveness when describing Gloria’s training program. Not since I transformed from a teacher in my home country to an international educator around the world have I had such a positive and transformational formal learning experience as I have with the PCI. Gloria has captured a wealth of wisdom in her curriculum; it’s inspiring, research-based and thorough. I wish every K-12 educator could supplement their training with this incredible program.
