Kenmore, WA (PressExposure) July 18, 2014 -- The award-winning online parenting classes offered by Priceless Parenting are now approved for CEU credit in California and Washington. Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFT), Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Licensed Educational Psychologists (LEP) and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCC) can receive continuing education credit.
These classes have transformed thousands of formerly frazzled families from across the United States to Australia. Parents quickly learn ways to improve cooperation and reduce conflict from the comfort of their own home. After completing a class, Amanda Mullins from Defiance, OH wrote "This parenting class was extremely informative and interesting. I found it easy to understand, and I loved the real-life examples included. I'd recommend this course to anyone. It's truly been helpful to myself and my family!"
Psychotherapist Dr. Marcy Cole suggested that the classes should be offered for CEU Credit for professionals supporting parents. She gave this recommendation after reviewing the classes for inclusion in her Childless Mothers Adopt program. Dr. Cole was impressed with the depth of the information and the engaging way it was presented through videos and stories of real parenting situations.
President of Priceless Parenting, Kathy Slattengren, M. Ed., responded "It was wonderful hearing Dr. Cole's positive, enthusiastic feedback on the classes. She immediately saw how these classes could help professionals while also fulfilling their continuing education requirements. Priceless Parenting is pleased to now offer CEU credit for the classes in California and Washington. We plan to add more states in the future."
Different parenting classes are available based on the children's ages: 5 and under, 6 to 12 and teens. The classes are grounded on decades of positive parenting experiences from real life situations and backed by the latest scientific research in child development.
Narrated slides and videos are used to teach the material with homework suggestions to try out the ideas. Each class is self-paced and takes about 6 hours to complete. There is a short quiz before participants can print out their CEU Certificate of Completion.
