Parent Child Interaction Therapy: Training for Professionals Working with High-Risk Families (Skills Seminar M)
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), developed initially to assist parents whose children demonstrate challenging behavioral problems, has been adapted as an intervention for at-risk families. This seminar describes the ways in which PCIT proves appropriate for high-risk families and, additionally, reviews the results of an initial phase of the development of a PCIT Training Curriculum. The Curriculum provided technical assistance as well staff and supervisor training to the personnel of 19 mental health agencies throughout the State of California. Presenters use a lecture and question-and-answer format, pretreatment and post-treatment videotapes, plus role-play to illustrate the application of the PCIT program to different types of families as well as to demonstrate its effectiveness.
