The material for this course has been developed by internationally renowned developmental psychologist Dr. Gordon Neufeld, a best-selling and award-winning author. His revolutionary yet scientific approach turns parenting right-side up, restoring natural intuition to parenting and putting parents back in the driver’s seat. His book Hold On To Your Kids is causing an international stir and is now available in eight languages. This course takes the best that science has to offer and renders it readily accessible to parents of children of all ages. Dr. Neufeld’s approach has won powerful endorsements from such luminaries as Dr. Samuel Segal, Dr. Mary Pipher, Raffi, Dr. Peter Levine and Robert Bly.
