Therapists & Interns

"All our therapists, interns, and coaches must live and practice the causal theory in order to teach or get referrals from PaRC. This achievement awards them a Certificate in Lifestyle." — Dr. Faye Snyder

“I am convinced that had we not found our way to PaRC, things would have turned out dramatically different for our entire family. I am beyond grateful for the information and support we have received.”

In 2003 Charles received a certificate in Chemical Dependency from Glendale Community College. He is a popular public speaker and PaRC has since certified him as a Life Coach.

Master Teachers, Coaches and Monitors

PaRC has trained some Master Parents as parenting teachers, coaches and monitors. These lay parenting experts are skilled observers of parenting and highly qualified to coach parents and monitor visits for DCFS. All Master Parents listed below have taken numerous graduate level psychology classes at PaRC (the classes available for continuing education units for therapists) and have spent at least two or more years training in relationship skills. Most have been teaching parenting at PaRC for years as lay experts who are Certified in Lifestyle. They can function as unobtrusive and diplomatic observers or monitors, and they are skilled in assertiveness when necessary, giving quality feedback and de-escalating tense family situations or contentious situations in the classroom. These coaches are also available for home visits.

Monitors and coaches are available through PaRC at (818) 891-8477.

Scott Snyder, Master Teacher

Scott Snyder (Master Parent)

Scott Snyder (aka Scott Clifton) was raised in the theory by the theoretician, and as such, may be the prototype, so it’s particularly interesting to hear him teach. Scott may have the deepest and most intuitive understanding of the theory. He began teaching when he was 20, having completed the requirements to become a Master Teacher. He specializes in Lecture One, “How to Make a Personality”, because it is an overview of The Theory. He also co-teaches Lecture Nine on Intelligence with Dr. Faye. He is a consummate debater and offers an annual class on debate skills or “how to question and to disagree intelligently”. Master Parents voted to elect Scott as the Ombudsman for PaRC.
