The Biblical Parenting Coaching Program

The purpose of the Biblical Parenting Coaching Program is to raise up more coaches that will help support and guide parents through the challenges of raising children. Coaches who have completed the program are added to the list of available coaches on our website where parents can find them. This is a personal apprenticeship program offering training under the direct leadership of Dr. Scott Turansky.

While in the program, you'll read several books, listen to teaching videos, and interact in an online environment about the case studies brought by each of the coaches in training. During the eight-week training you'll work with one parent who is interested in receiving help. You'll learn how to determine heart issues, identify specific challenges, and then, using the skills and strategy learned in the program, coach that parent to see change in one child. The practical training and interaction with other coaches and their cases will empower you to help many parents in the future.

In case you're wondering where you're going to get a parent to coach during the training, here's some guidance. You can try to find someone from your own circle of relationships at church or friends, or just put a note on facebook and you'll probably get 10 volunteers interested in coaching. Or, if you're stuck, Dr. Turansky keeps a list of interested parents who are wishing to be clients during the training. You'll work with that person over the phone or skype. In other words, finding the person to work with you shouldn't be too much of a challenge.

Although anyone can go through the class to become trained, only those who go through the class and are approved to be coaches will be placed on the website. This approval process requires that you fill out an application. You can do that in advance of taking the class if you'd like and you can be provisionally approved pending the training. Approval requires that you have qualifications to mentor others. You might be an experienced mom or dad, a pastor, a counselor, or somehow has the necessary qualifications to help parents. Coaches can be removed from the website if the quality of their work doesn't match the standards necessary.

During the training, parents and coaches will each be directed to different sites that contain videos, handouts, and reading lists that is appropriate for them. These are different sites but some of the material is common to both. There is no cost for the parent to be coached other than the costs charged by the coach. However, the parent will have opportunity to purchase the books used in the program, at a discount if he/she is interested.
