Institute 7: Parent•Child Interaction Therapy: Treatment Components, Evidence Base, Adaptations, and Training Guidelines
Presenters familiarize attendees with one of the evidence-based treatments for preschoolers, Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). Participants increase their understanding of PCIT’s treatment components and its use with young children exhibiting disruptive behavior disorders and for families with neglect or abuse histories. Other areas covered are: assessment strategies, skills the parent must learn, coaching principles, PCIT adaptations, limitations in use, and the necessary training components for PCIT therapists. Child and adolescent psychiatrists with knowledge of PCIT greatly enhance their ability to develop effective treatment plans for very young children and can effectively advocate for quality interventions for high-risk preschoolers.
