(Fort Worth, Texas)
The distinguished Academy for Coaching Parents International honors the needs of the whole person, parent or child, through addressing physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. ACPI exists to meet and overcome the unusual challenges families now face in the 21st century.
The Heartwise Coaching model offers coaching through connection, emphasizing personal-interactive styles. The more you learn of this amazing breakthrough in child development and parent coaching, the more you'll want to participate in the leading-edge, evidence-based methods of supporting parents and nurturing children who are healthy in mind, body and spirit and build a rewarding career with a great income and tremendous satisfaction.
As of November 2010, the Academy will offer certification and training through the only online school, making parenting coaching available to everyone globally. Interested students currently have the option of learning through independent study, coaching seminars and tele-classes.
A New York Times article described the profession of parent coaching as "the newest self-help approach for over stretched parents" and it is catching on fast for several reasons:
- the cost is reasonable;
- it can be done over the telephone or Internet;
- it offers continuity when parents move away from counselors and doctors;
