Transform

transform-largea new online program designed to walk parents through radical growth that brings equality, trust, and true respect to family life

TBrettHeadshot-9croppedI created Transform in an effort to meet the needs and requests from parents across the world who want to explore the large concepts and the daily practice of parenting for social change. Using my experience in facilitating transformative learning and intergroup dialogue, I began my own intensive learning journey. It led me to a deeper understanding that the ways our society treats children sets the foundation for all other forms of injustice. 

Transform is my offering to support parents as they undergo their transformative journey. This inner work serves as a foundation for outer action that ultimately liberates individuals, groups and communities. I am honored to offer this program as a tool for you to transform your life, and in turn, transform our world.

- Teresa Graham Brett

 

Transform provides a guided experience for parents to investigate their childhood, analyze their current dynamics, and strategize their future possibilities in creating a wholly liberated family life.

.
Transform includes three modules that are specifically designed to give you personal relief, interpersonal skills, and tools for societal change. The content is spaced out throughout the year to allow you to digest the information, practice the skills, and successfully parent for social change.


Transform: Our Day to Day Parenting Practices

>> Gain heartfelt support as you unravel the messaging and experiences from your childhood that inform your parenting
>> Learn actual skills to foster meaningful equality in your family
>> Experiment with real strategies to infuse respect in your parenting


Transform: Our Blow Ups and Vulnerable Moments
>> Reflect on the oppressive dynamics and routines that surround the toughest moments in family life
>> Understand what vulnerabilities are triggered in you when struggle arises
>> Acquire realistic strategies to reconnect after blow-ups or freak outs
>> Implement non-oppressive tools to be wholly present in challenging situations


Transform: Our Interactions with the Greater World
>> Connect your parenting style to what you believe about the world at large (beliefs around culture, race, gender, class, etc.)
>> Communicate honestly with your extended family and community about your parenting beliefs
>> Navigate external relationships using strategies you foster inside your family


Each life changing module includes the following:
* Intentionally crafted content delivered every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday throughout the modules that provide information, opportunities for personal reflection, and tools for success.
* Comprehensive database of information for you to reference anytime, day or night.


Your professional experience in social justice education with university students applied then to your own mothering path is the most fresh, insightful and unique parenting support work I have seen! I can’t wait to work together over the coming months. ~Lisa

Thank you, Teresa, for helping us see a better way to parent. I learned so much from you… It has stayed with me and allowed our family to be so much more peaceful and connected. ♥ ~Carolyn

Teresa has been a shining light, a mediator, a mentor, and an inspirational force. She’s been a source of support and validation, and also challenged me to see and explore topics in ways I hadn’t previously considered. Teresa surpassed my expectations through her ability to take a holistic approach to each and every situation, and to address issues with the open mind and heart of someone who can combine years of leadership experience with the ability to deeply listen and engage multiple viewpoints. ~Maria

Wondering who Teresa Graham Brett is?

1236121_10203188590301137_5836399280550899388_nHi there, I’m Teresa. I live my passion for creating social change by combining my work in social justice education with parenting. After graduating from law school, I opted to serve the cause of social change as an advocate, educator, and leader at three large public universities across the United States.

My life was transformed after the births of two children. In spite of my espoused professional values, I realized that I had accepted, without question, the dominant cultural beliefs that adults have the right to control and coerce children.

The children in my life have challenged me to live according to the values of liberation, freedom and respect as a parent and human being.

Using my experience in facilitating transformative learning and intergroup dialogue, I began my own intensive learning journey. It led me to a deeper understanding that the ways our society treats children sets the foundation for all other forms of injustice.

As a writer and consultant, I work with other parents to do inner work as a foundation for outer action that ultimately liberates individuals, groups and communities.

I believe that as individuals and a society we can create a base of love, wholeness, authenticity, and integrity that is the foundation for just and empowering relationships. And, as we are each reflections of the world, the world is changed by our commitment to wholeness, liberation, and freedom.

I’d be honored if you joined me for this journey, as we transform childhood, and our world in the process.

Sincerely,
Teresa


Transform, Intensive

For a short period of time I am offering 15 slots for parents who want additional in-depth work. Transform, Intensive provides all the goodness of Transform, along with two individual coaching calls, which can be used at any point throughout the year. Additionally, all Transform, Intensive members will receive a copy of my book Parenting for Social Change. 

Please note that Transform, Intensive is not for everyone. In the coaching calls, I’ll bring my A-game to build you up into being a boldly authentic parent, grounded in social justice. The Intensive is truly for parents who are looking to radically transform their understanding of the world, in order to compassionately change it. If this is your level of commitment, then let’s do it.

Frequently Asked Questions
(from actual people!)

Teresa, does my spouse get access to all of the Transform materials as well?

Absolutely! Once you purchase Transform, send me an email and let me know to add your partner / spouse’s email to the Transform program and we’ll be good to go!

I do want to mention that this program is designed for YOU as an individual to participate in. I am happy to extend the offer to partners / spouses, but your success in the program is not contingent upon their participation. If you’re ready to jump in – I’m here for you.

Teresa, why would I sign up for Transform if I can just read your blog and watch your public videos?

I love this question, because it tells me I’m doing something completely right. A huge goal of mine is to provide quality, consistent, FREE content. That’s why I offer a multitude of support and wisdom via my website, facebook page, and online videos.

However, within the online content there remains a lacking – and that’s around structure and intention. Because I publish what I want, on my terms, it sometimes feels one-way. And that is direct conflict of another goal of mine – which is to be in connection and communication with you. When we are in connection and communication, the relationship helps moves you from theory to practice, from insights to instinct.

Transform is where I take the concepts I address on my website, and I dive in – right alongside you, to bring out the big picture AND the detailed nuances.

Transform is the difference between periodically checking an email, and intentionally participating in some major growth and discovery.

Transform is created for those of us who are ready to parent from a place of respect, equality, and deep love. And that can only be cultivated in an intentionally created program.

Teresa, I am so busy right now, how can I be sure I won’t waste money on this?

Thank you for bringing this up. You are busy! The thing is – we all are. Every parent who is participating in Transform is too. (Plus, how likely is it that all of sudden, one day, we won’t be busy?)

So we’ve got to take the opportunities when we can get them. Transform works only because busy people step up and make the commitment. They put the intention out there and follow through. And it works.

Plus, Transform is designed in three chunks, so you don’t have to be “full on” the entire year. Instead, I work with you for a two week module, then we have a break where you can practice and experiment and learn and reflect. Then we dive back in.

(Also, all the emails, audio files, and resources will be available to you even after the module completes, so you can return to the content and access it whenever you’d like.)

Transform is not here to overwhelm you, it’s here to open up your parenting to all the possibilities.

And once you step up to those possibilities, and begin to have even one eye-opening, dynamic shifting, respect fostering, moment…it makes the entire program completely worth it.

It was wonderful connecting with you and receiving support to move out of the box. Your work is important and groundbreaking. Thank you! ~Savannah

Thank you soooo much for all you’ve been writing and recording lately. It’s immensely helpful on my journey and practice of parenting. ~Anne

Teresa’s personal trials of parenthood gave me hope that I could be the parent I’ve always wanted to be. She simply pointed out how our actions as parents emanated from the conditional love that we may have received in our own childhoods…Thank you Teresa, for listening, and saying only what you needed to. “Feel before you think” is now my gentle reminder for gentle parenting. ~Archana

Still not sure? I understand, it’s a big commitment.
