"The PCI attracts the best and brightest professionals, including teachers, social workers, counselors and other professionals who want to make a difference in the world." Gloria DeGaetano, Founder
BELLINGHAM, WA, January 31, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Parent Coaching Institute proudly announces that Gloria DeGaetano, Founder and Director has been included as one of the "A-list whole-systems luminaries" in the recently published book, American Prophets, edited by Seattle poet and renowned interviewer Paul E. Nelson. Mr. Nelson will conduct a book tour in the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia beginning February 3.
American Prophets compiles transcripts of radio interviews Nelson conducted from 1997-2005, showing that over twenty years ago forward-thinking authors, poets, and activists were telling us how things could be. Now as we read their prophetic insights we see they actually predicted how things have become.
When asked how she felt being included in a book with such culture-shaping individuals as Larry Dossey, Rupert Sheldrake, and Jean Houston, Gloria DeGaetano responded, "It's surreal, really. I knew that Paul interviewed these and other pioneers, but that he included me with them in this book, well, it's a bit overwhelming. I am deeply honored—so thankful that a distinguished poet and interviewer such as Paul E. Nelson understands and appreciates our work at the Parent Coaching Institute."
Included in the section on Thinkers and Activists, DeGaetano's 2004 interview outlines the challenges for parents in a high-tech society, run by mega-corporations, and how PCI parent coaching supports them to parent from their highest values for their children. "And in 2019 the struggle is by far greater than ever for families to cope with the stresses of our increasingly complex society." DeGaetano adds, "Since that 2004 interview PCI's parent coaching model has proven to be a very effective way to help families flourish. There has never been a greater need or a better time for parent coaches."
Using evidence-based strategies and a well-researched framework for communication and analysis, PCI Certified Parent Coaches® work with families to help them create awareness of new possibilities. In addition to working with parents directly, parent coaches offer their services to agencies, schools and businesses.
"PCI parent coaches work from the heart and are highly skilled," says DeGaetano. "The PCI attracts some of the best and brightest professionals around the globe, including teachers, social workers, counselors and other professionals who want to make a difference in the world. We're very proud of our graduates and are excited about the possibilities that await them and the families they help."
