GEP Facilitator Training Highlights

Research has shown that when core emotional needs are not met during the formative years of a child, "Lifetraps" (schemas) will develop. These core emotional needs are:
  • Connection and Acceptance
  • Healthy Autonomy and Performance
  • Reasonable Limits
  • Realistic Expectations
  • "plus-one" need of Spiritual Values and Community
While no one's parenting can ever be perfect, "Good Enough Parenting" offers a step-by-step guide on how parents can learn to meet these core needs, and provide parenting that is "good enough" to prevent "Lifetraps" from developing in their children. "Good Enough Parenting", a series of nine Christian parenting workshops, was developed by John and Karen Louis and is based on Schema Therapy founded by Dr. Jeffrey Young.

GEP Facilitator Training Certification

Participants will receive certification as facilitators for "Good Enough Parenting" program, access to website resources including video recordings of training sessions, program PowerPoint presentation, notes and a book authored by John and Karen Louis.

Important Note: In order to conduct the "Good Enough Parenting" program to your audience, you will need to have a set of over 20 DVDs. The list of these DVDs will be provided for you so you can purchase them at your convenience.
