Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
PCIT is an evidence-based treatment for young children (2.5 to 7 years) with disruptive behavior, such as noncompliance, aggression, tantrums and oppositional behavior. In PCIT, parents are taught specialized skills to help better manage challenging behavior while also improving the parent-child relationship. PCIT has been shown to increase children’s prosocial behavior and reduce parental stress.
PCIT is a short-term program that provides active skills training and supportive coaching, in which caregivers learn a specialized set of skills to support children experiencing behavioral and/or emotional difficulties.
