for Parent Coaches
The PCI students are teachers, counselors, personal coaches,
social service workers, and family advocates. They are seeking
a challenging, relevant program at the graduate level for parent
coach certification or for one or more graduate courses which
will enhance their work with parents. Our students are heart-centered,
spiritual people who delight in the collegial camaraderie offered
by the PCI. Even if those problems seem difficult and almost in need of
remarkable powers of recovery. They are disciplined individuals who live full personal
and professional lives and can meet and exceed the high expectations
of our intensive year-long distance-learning program. PCI students
have distinguished themselves in their careers; they are leaders
in their fields and know how to benefit from the opportunities
presented to them by the PCI to express their creativity and
individual talents. Our students are pioneers who resonate with
the PCI model, its principles, and its vision. They know that
the complex challenges for parents within a techno-consumer
culture demand a radical approach, the PCI approach, if significant
social transformation is to occur.

How to Apply to the PCI
Services for Parents
Our clients are busy professional parents who seek perspective
and support from our highly trained and experienced parent coaches.
These parents enjoy the ease and convenience of a weekly telephone
call at the time that is right for their schedule, day or evening.
The parents we serve are 100% committed to themselves and to their
children. They may be wanting guidance with a tough decision as
to what school is best for their child, how to positively approach
a new blended family situation, ways to reduce stress as a single
parent; or they may be seeking a sounding-board for any of the
myriad of parenting issues we all deal with at one time or another.
The reasons for parent coaching are varied, but what remains true
is that the parents we coach here at the PCI are motivated, resourceful
individuals who know how to benefit from ongoing coaching support.

model. The organizations we work with value the depth of our research-based,

training has taught me far more about how to formulate questions,
how to word them and time them to be most powerful and transformational,
than any other training I've had. Now I understand how to
really catalyze transformative change for the parents I'm
