Parent-Child Interaction Therapy: Treatment Components and Evidence-Base

Recent studies have shown increasing rates of antipsychotic use without accompanying assessment or therapy visits for very young children, while clinical consensus exists that preschoolers with disruptive behavior disorders and/or ADHD should be treated with psychosocial treatment modalities before initiating medication treatments. Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) has demonstrated significant improvements with preschoolers. Participants gain knowledge about the theoretical framework and assessment procedures involved in PCIT. Lecture, videos, and role-playing are used to enhance participants’ ability to identify the treatment components of PCIT.
