If so, you are not alone and PCIT may work for your family!!
During Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), parents learn behavioral play therapy skills to enhance their parent child relationship. Parents also learn to manage child behavior through behavioral discipline principles. Therapists will work with your family until your child’s home behaviors improve.
Parent Child Interaction Therapy consists of three parts:
PCIT treatment typically lasts 14-18 weeks and parents are asked to complete home practice activities with their child between sessions. Parents are asked to commit to attend weekly treatment sessions with their child.
The PCIT Research team works with young children and their parents to create stronger, more positive family relationships through PCIT. We help parents feel more confident to handle the everyday problems that occur with parenting children, which fosters children behaving in more positive ways, while building a more warm, nurturing relationship between parent and child.
