Why Dr. Thomas Gordon's "Parent Effectiveness Training" is Classroom-based

Written By: Linda Adams, President of GTI

The question about whether P.E.T. can be taught online has come up from time to time and with the advances in technology, even more so recently.

Of course, it's true that many courses can be effectively offered online, especially when they include mostly didactic material.  Some universities are now offering entire degrees online.
Because it's sometimes difficult to find a P.E.T. course in a certain area or on a certain date, the idea of teaching/participating in a course online can sound like a good alternative.

We don't want to insist on the traditional classroom training format simply because that's the way we've always done it.  As a result, we've taken a hard look at what could be gained or lost by having P.E.T. offered online and have identified the reasons for maintaining our existing delivery system.
