PCIT is an evidence based treatment for a young child, ages 2-7 years old, that focuses on enhancing and improving the parent-child relationship by providing specialized training to parents whose child may not respond to typical parenting styles. Parents learn specific skills, including tools for more productive means of discipline, that help them establish a nurturing and secure relationship with their child while increasing their child’s pro social behavior and increasing positive behavior.

PCIT consists of 14-20 sessions focusing on two basic interactions, Child Directed Interaction- CDI and Parent Directed Interaction- PDI. Caregivers generally see improvement in the child’s behavior in the first three to four sessions.

Live coaching is used to promote rapid learning and immediate reinforcement.
