About the Parent Coaching Institute

Founded in 2000 by Gloria DeGaetano the Parent Coaching Institute is home to the Parent Coach Certification® Training Program for parent educators, child care directors, teachers, counselors, social workers, and community health workers.

Anyone working with families who would like to implement a parent coach approach is invited to apply to our one-year, graduate-level, distance learning Parent Coach Certification® Training Program.

The Parent Coaching Institute refers moms and dads to PCI graduates who choose to be listed in our directory, Find a PCI Coach. We also help schools and agencies offer PCI coaching to their parents.

In 2011, growing globally, PCI expanded to include Parent Coach International to better serve family support professionals worldwide.
