Parent-Child Interaction Therapy
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is a short-term, specialized behavior management program designed for families with young children (2-7) experiencing behavioral and/or emotional difficulties due to a variety of reasons, including trauma. PCIT places an emphasis on strengthening a positive caregiver-child relationship, while teaching caregivers how to appropriately manage their child’s problematic behaviors. PCIT consists of weekly sessions in which a therapist works with the child and caregiver(s) together to improve overall behavior and reduce parenting stress.
PCIT is an exceptionally effective treatment backed by over 30 years of research. Live, real-time coaching is a distinctive feature of PCIT.
