Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)

PCIT is an evidence-based intervention designed to reduce disruptive behavior in children. PCIT works with parents and children together to promote positive parent-chld relationships while decreasing the child's behavior problems.

PCIT is done across two treatment phases. The first phase of treatment focuses on establishing warmth in your relationship with your child through learning and applying skills proven to help children feel calm and secure in their relationship with their parents, and good about themselves. The second phase of treatment will equip you to manage the most challenging of your child's behaviors while remaining confident, calm and consistent in your apprach to discipline.
