Parent-Child Interaction Therapy
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an evidenced-based treatment for children ages 2-5 years old with challenging and disruptive behaviors. Working with a PCIT trained therapist over 12-16 sessions, parents and caregivers gain skills to build positive relationships and change negative parent-child behavior patterns.
Here are some questions to ask to determine if your child and you are candidates for Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT):
- Is the child between ages 2-7?
- Does the child have behavioral issues at home or school?
- Does the child engage in challenging or disruptive behaviors?
- Are you experiencing a lot of parenting stress?
- Would you value a trained professional taking a look at the unique interaction between you and your child and offering a tailored treatment approach?
- Could you use support in dealing with the challenge of parenting?
If you answered “yes” to some of these questions, you may benefit from Parent Child Interaction Therapy. This research-based treatment can help you with strategies to deal with the challenging behavior of your child. Your specially trained therapist will provide direction and support for you during each session.
