  • (1888PressRelease) August 12, 2010 - BELLEVUE, WASH - The Parent Coaching Institute (The PCI™), founded in 2000 by internationally known speaker, author, and educator Gloria DeGaetano, was the first program in the nation to certify parent coaches, which paved the way for parent coaching as a profession. Today, The PCI attracts highly skilled teachers, social workers, therapists, and other professionals who want to help families achieve positive outcomes by launching new careers as parent coaches. The PCI offers Parent Coach Certification® through a partnership with Seattle Pacific University.

    The training curriculum and model is based on a synthesis of leading-edge research and well-established strategies for helping parents achieve positive outcomes. Kay Kimball Gruder, a PCI Certified Parent Coach®, says this about the program: "When I found the PCI™ it was as if I had found a secret path that would serve to connect my educational background, work experiences, community involvements and parenting beliefs. Little did I know that this path would also lead me on a transformative journey of my own; connecting me with others who shared a desire to create a cultural shift toward more mindful parenting, launching my own parent coaching business and inspiring me to apply parent coaching techniques and principles to my work in higher education. My PCI™ training was both practical and inspiring and it is perhaps the single best educational experience that one could ever have."

    The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and many other local media have reported on The PCI™ and the ever-growing popularity of parent coaching, which is rapidly gaining esteem as a cost-effective and time-effective alternative to counseling for busy parents who want support on wide-raging issues, such as sleep habits, divorce and blended families, single parenting, teen development, navigating school systems, balancing work and life, taming temper tantrums, and more.
