Parent-Child Interaction Therapy Lab at WVU

Welcome, PCIT Enthusiasts!


Welcome to West Virginia University’s Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) Lab led by Dr. Cheryl Bodiford McNeil!

PCIT is an evidence-based practice for families with children between the ages of 2 and 7 years. PCIT is designed to improve caregiver-child relationships and to reduce a range of difficult behaviors problems, including noncompliance, aggressiveness, tantrums, and oppositional behavior. PCIT was developed by Dr. Sheila Eyberg at the University of Florida with whom Dr. McNeil trained. The WVU PCIT lab is a clinical research lab located in the Life Sciences Building. Dr. McNeil’s lab is currently staffed with 3 graduate students and 9 undergraduate students. This site is designed to give you a sense of who we are and what we do in the PCIT lab.
