Evidence-Based Personal Development for Parents. Parenting is the most incredible opportunity for personal growth available in a lifetime. More so than any other experience, you can transform yourself in ways beyond your imagination if done with intention. So much parenting is done either automatically, on the fly, or by following rules from an expert. Yet, exceptional parenting doesn't happen by following an expert, rules, or winging it, no matter how much yoga and meditation you do. Exceptional parenting occurs when parents undergo strategic and specific personal growth. But not just any personal growth will do. Some personal growth is effective and some not so much. Here, we use evidence-based best practices in personal growth to propel you to an advanced state of living so everyone around you, including your children will benefit. Dr. Jennifer Jones, renowned psychologist and acclaimed speaker guides us through an experiential, conversational and connecting group as we transform ourselves to become the best mothers and fathers for our children and ourselves.
Each session will consist of learning the science and psychology of transformational parenting, doing an experiential exercise such as art therapy, nature therapy, journaling, music therapy, and group therapy, and will be interactive and based in deep group communication. This is not therapy, but Dr. Jones will use therapeutic techniques to help deepen the process.

FAQ: How if this different from other parenting programs? It is the only parenting program that uses evidence-based psychology for the personal development and personal growth of parents.
Do I need special training or previous therapy to participate? No, anyone can benefit and everyone will be starting from the same place.
Is it like group therapy? Yes and No. We will be sitting in a circle and sharing deeply for some of the time, but it is not group therapy. The course is more experiential, using techniques from art therapy, nature therapy, and narrative therapy. You will not just be talking, but transforming yourself with multiple sensory experiences and having a lot of fun too! It's more like taking a personal day with some good friends than group therapy.
How old do my children have to be? This course is not about parenting techniques (though we will share with you the clear science-based evidence of recommended practices), but more about personal growth and transforming yourself. It's about you, and your children get to benefit from your awesomeness. So, we welcome new parents, expecting parents, parents with elementary-age, teens, and adult children. As go as you are a parent or will be soon, you will benefit from this course.
I'm not sure I can fit this into my schedule now, when will the next Transformational Parenting course be? We are not sure...Dr. Jones' book "Transformational Parenting" will be released soon after the end of this course so she will have to go on a speaking tour shortly after. We encourage you to sign up and do your best to come to all classes. If you miss one or two, you can receive the notes for the class you missed.
