Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)

Parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT) is an evidence-based treatment for young children between the ages of 2-7 with emotional and behavioral disorders. Therapists provide live coaching and support to parents during each session using a one-way mirror and a "bug-in-the-ear" communication system.  PCIT is time-limited, averaging about 14 weeks, with hour-long weekly sessions.
