Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an evidence-based treatment for children 2 to 7 years of age with emotional and behavioral disorders. PCIT is delivered in two phases. The primary goal of the first phase of PCIT (the Child-Directed Interaction) is to strengthen positive caregiver-child relationships. The primary goal of the second phase of PCIT (the Parent-Directed Interaction) is to change ineffective caregiver-child interaction patterns.
Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents impacted by trauma and their parents or caregivers. Research shows that TF-CBT successfully resolves a broad array of emotional and behavioral difficulties associated with single, multiple and complex trauma experiences.
