What is Parent-Child Interaction Therapy?
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy is a proven therapeutic approach designed to address behavioral issues in young children. The therapy involves coaching sessions that take place in a playroom, where you and your child will interact while a therapist observes from an adjacent room through a one-way mirror and/or a live video feed. To guide you through the process of learning how to manage your child's behavior, the therapist will provide in-the-moment coaching via a "bug-in-the-ear" device that you will wear during the sessions. PCIT consists of two treatment phases.
During the first phase, the focus is on building a warm and positive relationship between you and your child. This is achieved by teaching and applying evidence-based techniques that have been shown to promote feelings of calmness, security, and positive self-regard in children.
In the second phase of PCIT treatment, you will acquire the skills to effectively manage even the most difficult behaviors exhibited by your child, all while maintaining a sense of confidence, composure, and consistency in your disciplinary approach. During this phase, you will learn evidence-based strategies to help your child recognize and accept boundaries, follow your directives, abide by household rules, and display appropriate behavior in public settings.
How do I know if this is right for my child/family?
PCIT may be the right fit for your child and family if your child is between the ages of 2-7, experiencing behavioral concerns, and you are able to commit to participating actively in therapy sessions and practicing skills learned at home. It aims to improve the parent-child relationship, decrease negative behaviors, and increase positive behaviors. The length of PCIT can vary depending on the needs of the child and family, but it generally involves 12-20 weekly sessions that each last around one hour.
