After the zoom session, it will take around 2 hours to complete each week's course material.
I am an educator, can i complete the course?
Yes absolutely, anyone can complete the course. If you are wanting to facilitate the Peaceful Kids or Peaceful Parents programs in schools or in private practice, then you will need to complete the facilitator training. Please see more details on the training page. This course does not give you accreditation to be a Peaceful Kids or Peaceful Parents facilitator and only includes some of the strategies taught in the facilitator training.
do i have to attend the LIVE ONLINE sessions?
No, the online live sessions are all optional. You have the choice to complete the course at any time if you choose via the self-paced course. The online sessions are accessed within the course platform.

After each live session you then have access to the week's self paced course component. It is optional to attend the live online sessions.

can i get support for my child during the course?
This course is an educational and personal developmentcourse for parents and carers, and does not replace professional counselling or therapy. There is an opportunity to ask questions in the live online sessions, however these questions are based around the course content and strategies, not around individual behavioural issues or concerns about your child. We can recommend therapists for you if you are needing additional support for yourself or your child.
HOW IS THIS COURSE DIFFERENT TO OTHER PARENTING COURSES?
This course is not a 'parenting' course where you learn to be a perfect parent (there is no such thing anyway!) It is also not a course to learn behavioural strategies or parenting 'tips'.
This course is a personal development course, and is full of evidence based strategies where you grow a deep understanding of essential positive psychology strategies that you can implement into your own life as well as learning practical strategies to support your child.
The course has been specifically designed to build on parent's strengths and help parents understand and improve their own wellbeing which then enables parents to guide their child from their 'lived' experience. Research shows that children are more likely to embed new strategies into their lives, if their parents have a personal understanding of them as well.
