The Aware Parenting Institute is an international organisation founded by Aletha Solter, Ph.D. (a Swiss/American developmental psychologist). The Aware Parenting approach is described in her five books, which are available from most online booksellers.

Tears and Tantrums
Raising Drug Free Kids
Attachment play

 

Aletha Solter has led several workshops in Australia. Her first visit, in February 2005, included workshops in Brisbane and Byron Bay. Her second workshop tour, in November 2008, included workshops in Queensland (Brisbane), New South Wales (Murwillumbah and Mullumbimby, both near Byron Bay) and Victoria (Bendigo).
