Elissa Woolley

I have worked with children and families for over 20 years. It was towards the end of my psychology degree that I formed a real interest in behaviour modification. I was so disappointed that the foundation of my behaviour unit was primarily based on rewards and punishment. I knew there had to be a better way. With 9 of my own children, I had the motivation to find a way to have my family function effectively without coercion and control as a way of changing behaviour. I came across the ETIA while on my search and it changed my life. I am now in the process of finishing my post graduate diploma in Relationship and Family Therapy. I love how P.E.T. creates more connected relationships between parents and their children, and it is so rewarding to be part of this positive change in families.
