This workshop will provide a theoretical, empirical, and clinical overview of the Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) model.  PCIT is a well-recognized evidence-based treatment for young children (ages 2-7) with challenging behaviors and has been shown to strengthen caregiver-child relationships and reduce non-compliant and disruptive behavior.  PICT is a short-term assessment-driven treatment with a strong emphasis on in-vivo coaching.  It is a versatile treatment with applicability across cultural groups, diagnoses, and settings.  In addition to the traditional model, this presentation will provide an overview of implementing home-based PCIT and PCIT with children on the autism spectrum.  The workshop is interactive and includes didactic, modeling, and live practice of the skills to increase familiarity.


Upon the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

1) Describe specific components of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) for childhood externalizing behaviors;

2) Explain ways in which PCIT is implemented in-home and with children on the autism spectrum;

3) Summarize the empirical literature supporting PCIT;

4) Practice positive communication skills taught through the PCIT model.
