What Parents Are Saying
Very Useful Information – movingforward
It’s so helpful to understand what’s going on when a child is acting out and how to respond appropriately. Being able to respond appropriately using the tools we learned from the Total Transformation eliminated the feelings of helplessness and frustration. We can now parent with a pro-active approach instead of a reactive approach. We have seen a slow but steady positive change in our daughter since we have been using the Total Transformation.
Thank You! – Grateful Parents
Every precept James Lehman teaches about in the Total Transformation program has the ring of truth about it. We recognized lots of things we already “knew,” but which weren’t clear or which we weren’t sure how to go about implementing. I don’t think there was a single issue that we have already faced or will be facing that was not addressed in the TTP. In following this plan, it seems possible for anyone to be able to raise children to be happy and productive members of society.

The James Lehman Approach
Drawing from personal experience and 30 years in the field
“I was a kid with behavior problems—about the worst problems you can imagine.” James Lehman, MSW
James Lehman, who dedicated his life to behaviorally troubled youth, created The Total Transformation®, The Complete Guide to Consequences™, Getting Through To Your Child™, and Two Parents One Plan™, from a place of professional and personal experience. Having had severe behavioral problems himself as a child, he was inspired to focus on behavioral management professionally. Together with his wife, Janet Lehman, he developed an approach to managing children and teens that challenges them to solve their own problems without hiding behind disrespectful, obnoxious or abusive behavior. Empowering Parents now brings this insightful and impactful program directly to homes around the globe.
ADHD and School Issues
Jo-Ann and Kath were looking for ways to help their son Brennan, who is diagnosed with ADHD and Slow Processing Disorder. They recognized that Brennan is talented, creative, and a natural leader, but his tendency to challenge authority and test limits created serious issues at school and at home.
The Bentley family was looking for answers to help 14-year-old Alex manage her anger differently. Her ADHD made it difficult for her to control her behavior when she got frustrated. Outbursts of anger led to slamming doors and disrespect, which left the family feeling disconnected and discouraged.
Physical Violence & Disrespect
Carolyn Nash saw a big change in her son Theo after she and his father divorced. His disrespect led to outbursts of rage and even physical violence. Carolyn tried everything from grounding to counseling, but nothing seemed to work—until The Total Transformation.

Q: What is The Total Transformation®?
The Total Transformation is a 7-lesson multimedia program that helps parents understand and manage child behavior. Created by renowned child therapists James Lehman, MSW and Janet Lehman, MSW, Total Transformation will teach you how to develop your child’s problem solving skills and create a “Culture of Accountability” in your home, stopping bad behavior for good.
Q: What types of behaviors are covered in The Total Transformation®?
Total Transformation helps parents with specific techniques for fighting and arguing, lying, temper tantrums, talking back, destroying property, picking on siblings, bullying, acting sullen and withdrawn, lack of motivation, risky behavior, and behavior problems in school and in the community.
It’s important to note that the skill-set honed in the program helps build stronger relationships with all children in the family, not only those who have attitude or behavior problems.
Q: What is the age range for Total Transformation®?
The Total Transformation is recommended for children ages 5 to 18, but you may see immediate results with children of any age. By the time a “typical” child reaches the age of 5, all of the concepts in Total Transformation would apply to him or her. As your child grows, you’ll see the added benefit of the advanced features of the program. Each child is different and only you can know for sure what is right for yours.
Q: How long will it take to achieve real change in my child’s behavior?
You may see a change in your child’s behavior almost immediately after implementing the program. As families adopt more effective parenting roles, use behavior management techniques and hone problem-solving skills, significant, lasting change can occur.
Q: My child has a diagnosis (such as ADD/ADHD, ODD). Will the program work for him/her?
Yes. Total Transformation was born out of James and Janet Lehman’s decades of experience working with defiant, oppositional youth, many of whom had these diagnoses. A good approach for many families is to use the program tools in conjunction with the support of a trusted, qualified, local professional.
Q: Should I use The Total Transformation® in place of counseling or medication?
Total Transformation is not intended to take the place of professional therapy, counseling or medical treatment. Parents of children who are currently under the supervision of a professional should not discontinue care without speaking to this professional. This program is not intended as a substitute for medication, and you should never discontinue a child’s medication without consulting a qualified professional.
Q: Can I use The Total Transformation if I’m a grandparent, mental health professional, counselor, or teacher?
Absolutely. Countless grandparents, teachers, mental health professionals and caregivers use our program on a daily basis. Every adult who interacts with children in a meaningful way can benefit from the concepts and practical ideas presented in Total Transformation.
Empowering Parents also offers 6 Continuing Education Contact Hours that are approved by the National Association of Social Workers as a distance-learning continuing education program. Those interested must successfully complete an exam on The Total Transformation and submit a brief evaluation. We recommend you check with your licensing board to determine if these credits can be useful to you.
If you have purchased The Total Transformation and would like an exam and evaluation sent to you, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Is there anyone who shouldn’t use Total Transformation®?
Children with autism, profound intellectual disabilities, and severe psychiatric disorders that result in an inability to communicate may not benefit from the techniques outlined in Total Transformation. Their parents, however, may benefit from the concepts taught in the program.
