Puget Sound Adlerian Society (PSAS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which has served the Central Puget Sound areas since 1975, promoting life-long learning of the Adlerian Psychology. We not only host free, 14-hour Positive Discipline parenting course, but also organize an online Parenting Event Calendar, that lists the PSAS, as well as other collaborators and organizations’ parenting education and training courses information within the Central Puget Sound areas. Some classes are free, some with reduced charge or qualified for scholarships. (Disclaimer — For classes, events, practitioner, or workshops which are not affiliated directly with the PSAS, we do not endorse nor guarantee its qualities as well as contents.)
PSAS Board Statement on Black Lives Matter as of June 19, 2020:
Special Covid-19 Updates (starting from March, 2020):
Due to the Stay Home Order in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, beginning March, 2020, all previously-scheduled, face-to-face parenting classes in different communities throughout the greater Seattle areas, hosted by the PSAS, as well as by our collaborators, have been postponed. The PSAS website (www.psasadler.org) still lists schedules for the upcoming First Friday Forums, as well as information related to the parenting courses based on Positive Discipline (in Spanish and Mandarin as well as English), and the workshops—Teaching Parenting the Positive Discipline Way, and Positive Discipline in the Classroom (in Spanish and English). However, to this date, there are only a few online parenting classes ongoing within the Central Puget Sound areas, and most of them are fee-based. The good news is that some of them do offer limited scholarship and/or sliding scale fees.
If you are interested in any of those groups, please be proactive and contact the individual group organizers, facilitators, and leaders in order to find out if they still accept new participants and host online support groups.
All new parenting related events, including above-mentioned parenting classes, can be found via the “Event Calendar” (the first category under “Event” button). Classes and events are searchable upon the “Search” button, by typing in area, region, conditions, or developmental stages as key words to the search box. For example, looking for parenting classes in Kent area for toddlers, the search key words can be “Kent” and/or “toddler”; looking for autism, mental health, or chronic illness support groups and/or events, can use keywords such as “autism”, “mental health”, “foster”, “ADHD”, “bi-sexual”, or “chronic”.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for, the “Parenting Resources” page may lead you to find organizations, and parent educators’ contact information in your area; you may find useful information related to particular age groups, or particular group(s) of the interest, such as special-needs, mental health, parents in recovery, stepparents, parents of spirited children, and so on. These organizations and parent educators may offer parenting programs and classes on a regular or as-needed basis, but not shown on our frequently-updated, monthly event calendar. If you have any question, or want us to list any new events for your organization(s) on our website, feel free to contact us and provide the updates via psasadler@gmail. Thank you!)
P.S. We have migrated and upgraded the PSAS website to this new outlook for better user experience. We have stopped updating our old website as of 9/17/2018. You can access the old website from here; however, there will be no more event updates on the old site. All new updates are in this new site.
