Aware Parenting Instructor Certification Program

The Aware Parenting instructors have been certified by Aletha Solter to teach the philosophy of Aware Parenting described in her five books (The Aware Baby, Cooperative and Connected (a revised edition of Helping Young Children Flourish), Tears and Tantrums, Raising Drug-Free Kids, and Attachment Play). Instructors must renew their certification every two years. You may contact them directly for information about Aware Parenting activities in their area (lectures, workshops, support groups, consultations, etc.).

Please click on the first link below to see the list of requirements for becoming certified. All of the instructors have met these 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.
