Parent Education Program

Our parent education lectures and courses cover a variety of topics including instilling self confidence in children, utilizing effective discipline methods and encouraging social interest toward others.

This training is provided by our founder and board member, Carolyn Crowder, Ph.D. She has taught parenting classes for 40 years and worked in private practice and other settings ranging from state prison, university counseling center and public schools. Additionally she speaks about the dangers and abuses of using psychiatric medications to control behavior in children.

Dr. Crowder has published three parenting books, one of which was on the NY Times bestseller list. She has appeared on 20/20, Dateline, Lifetime Live, The Early Show, and Today Show, as well as NPR. Additionally, Dr. Crowder speaks across the country challenging the drugging of children.
