Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT): Effective Treatment, Effective Training

10/24/2013; 53 minutes

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is a mental-health treatment method for young children from 2-7 who engage in disruptive behaviors. The treatment has been proven effective in more than 100 different research studies. Anthony Urquiza, Director of the UC Davis Child and Adolescent Abuse, Resource, Evaluation (CAARE) Diagnostic and Treatment Center, and staff developed a model for training therapists to achieve competency in both PCIT and training other therapists at their respective agencies. Evaluations of this model showed that the therapists who received the training were able to achieve the same positive outcomes when using PCIT, and their agencies were able to sustain effective programs over time.
