Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is a short-term, evidence-based treatment for two-and-a-half to six-year-olds with behavioral or emotional difficulties. PCIT is conducted through coaching sessions with the parent and child in a playroom, while the therapist observes their interaction and provides in-the-moment skills coaching.

Typical goals for children are to decrease tantrums and negative-seeking behaviors, increase attention span and self-esteem, and improve pro-social behavior, such as sharing and taking turns. Our presenter, Dr. Karissa Jensen, is a clinical psychologist at LifeScape.
