PEP Parent Educators

PEP Parent Educators are first and foremost parents just like you. They started in PEP classes, looking for answers to their parenting questions. They found the PEP approach so helpful in their families that they trained to become a PEP parent educator. Your PEP Parent Educators have spent hundreds (and in some cases, thousands) of hours in classes and training sessions as well as in on-the-job training in order to gain the skills to be working with you today.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I have to withdraw from the class? Will I get my money back?
If you cancel your registration at least 48 hours before the first class meeting, you will receive a refund minus an administrative fee of $10 per person per class. There will be no other refunds.
Can my spouse and I share a class? We both travel a lot and there will only be one of us at each meeting of the class.
No, each person planning on attending the class must be registered. We do offer a couple's discount to make two registrations more affordable.
I have to miss a class. What do I do about that?
You have a few options. You may make up two weeks of your class in the next term. Or you might be able to join the class remotely via a class participant's phone or ask someone to record the class for you (provided the rest of the class gives their permission to have it recorded). Talk to your PEP Leaders about it. If it is the first meeting of Managing Anger, email the PEP office: [email protected]
