Certified Aware Parenting Instructors

 

flags around the world

The following people have been certified by Aletha Solter to teach the philosophy of Aware Parenting described in her five books: The Aware Baby, Cooperative and Connected, Tears and Tantrums, Raising Drug-Free Kids, and Attachment Play.

All instructors must renew their certification every two years. Please contact them directly for information about Aware Parenting activities in their area (lectures, workshops, support groups, consultations, etc.).

red star The names with a red star indicate Level 2 instructors. These instructors are more experienced and have met additional requirements beyond the basic certification requirements. They are certified to offer workshops that meet the workshop requirement for people who wish to become certified.

Click here to see the requirements for becoming a Level 2 Aware Parenting instructor (advanced certification requirements).

Please note that the instructors work entirely independently. Aletha Solter has given them permission to teach this approach to parents, but they are not employees or subcontractors of the Aware Parenting Institute. Their advice should be carefully evaluated for your personal situation. Aletha Solter and the Aware Parenting Institute shall have neither liability nor responsibility to any person or entity with respect to any damage caused, or alleged to be caused, directly or indirectly, by any advice from these instructors. Furthermore, they have not been certified by Aletha Solter to give medical advice or to do therapy with adults or children, although some of them have additional credentials as medical professionals or psychotherapists. If you consult with them for anything other than Aware Parenting information and support, please check their credentials and references, as you would for any other professional.
