A few words from our founder
“I remember the first time I met Adele. I followed her around like a little dog. She asked me, ‘What is all this admiration?’ I said, ‘Adele, if all the parents in the world would use one skill described in your books, it would change the face of the world.’ She answered in all modesty, ‘Ooh ! What a nice way to say it !’ “, Roseline Roy.

Workshop Leader’s Material

It is possible to participate in Faber-Mazlish workshops, and even to lead them. In order to make this accessible to everyone, “turnkey” material has been created by the authors.


To participate in a workshop, only the participant’s workbook is mandatory. Reading the complementary books is nevertheless recommended. The content of the workshops also includes reading certain passages of the books.
