Parent-Child Interaction Therapy

What is Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)?

PCIT is an evidence-based practice for young children (ages 2 to 7) with disruptive behavior, such as noncompliance, aggressiveness, 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. For additional information, please see our PCIT Brochure.
