PCIT for Children with Challenging Behaviors

Are you raising a 2- to 7-year-old child with challenging behaviors?

Does your child struggle with challenging behaviors at home and/or in child care or school settings?

Do you worry about your child’s relationship with parents, caregivers, or friends?

Does it feel like your discipline efforts just  aren’t working?

If the answer is yes, then Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) may be right for your family.

PCIT is a short-term, specialized behavior management program designed for families with young children experiencing behavioral and/or emotional difficulties. It is an exceptionally effective treatment backed by over 30 years of research.

PCIT teaches caregivers to manage their child’s misbehavior while focusing on increasing their positive behaviors. A PCIT therapist works with the child and caregiver together to improve overall behavior and reduce parenting stress.
