The Parent Coaching Institute (The PCI) is proud to announce the launch of an independent study option to complement its innovative, global distance-learning parent coach training program, the only graduate-level program of its kind in the nation.
BELLEVUE, WA, April 07, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Parent Coaching Institute announces the launch of an Independent Study Option for busy professionals whose schedule doesn’t allow them to commit to monthly cohort participation. Candidates may apply at anytime throughout the year.
PCI, founded by internationally known education expert, speaker and author Gloria DeGaetano, is giving shape to a burgeoning industry and creating new opportunities for family support professionals desiring to add a research-based coaching model to their tool chest.
“There has never been a greater need or a better time for qualified parent coaches,” says DeGaetano. “Families are struggling to cope with the stresses of our increasingly complex society, and effective coaching is proving to help families flourish because it addresses unique needs with specific, personalized strategies.”
Using evidence-based strategies and a well-researched framework for communication and analysis, PCI Certified Parent Coaches work with families in a strength-based approach, helping them resolve parenting challenges. In addition to working with parents directly PCI coaches offer their services to agencies, schools and businesses.
“Our coaches work from the heart and are highly skilled,” says DeGaetano. “The PCI attracts the best and brightest professionals around the world, including teachers, social workers, counselors and others who have a passion to make positive differences for families. We’re very proud of our graduates and are excited about the possibilities that await them and the families they help.”
PCI is in partnership with Southern New Hampshire University offering optional 6 graduate level credits for each course of the Parent Coach Certification Training Program for a total of 24 credits. Students selecting the Independent Study Option may choose these credits as they receive the same training program as cohort participants.
The Parent Coaching Institute (The PCI) is the leading organization dedicated to advancing the parent coaching profession. Founded in 2000 by Gloria DeGaetano, it was the originator of the parent coaching industry, and it continues to set the highest national standards for Parent Coach Certification.
