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. Treatment emphasizes improving the quality of the parent-child relationship by helping parents build positive, warm relationships with their children while also supporting parents as they set firm, developmentally appropriate limits. Children and their parents are seen together in PCIT, with parents practicing specific therapy skills in different play situations. Therapists provide live coaching and support to parents during each session using a one-way mirror and a "bug-in-the-ear" communication system. Therapy skills are also practiced at home, with the therapist and parent collaborating to decide which skills to focus on most over the next week. PCIT is time-limited, averaging about 14 weeks, with hour-long weekly sessions. Families remain in treatment until parents have demonstrated mastery of treatment skills and the child’s behavior has improved.

For more information, please contact Dr. Michelle Greenberg, Director of Clinical Intake Services, at (914)-385-1150 ext. 1.

    Dr. Alec Miller and colleagues have worked tirelessly to adapt DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) for teenage youth as a treatment for suicidal and non-suicidal injury. Dr. Miller contributed to a one-year follow up study showing that DBT shows a strong long-term reduction in self-harm and a more rapid recovery from suicidal ideation, depression and borderline adolescents. #MIAW2016
