This workshop will provide a theoretical, empirical, and clinical overview of the Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) model for children on the autism spectrum. 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. PCIT 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. The workshop is interactive and includes didactic, modeling, video demonstrations, and some light 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 adapted with children on the autism spectrum;

3) Summarize the empirical literature supporting PCIT and autism spectrum disorders;

4) Practice the skills taught through the PCIT model.

 

Dr. Joshua Masse is an assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, the Director of Young Child Services at the Boston Child Study Center, and a certified Master Trainer endorsed by Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) International. He has published peer-reviewed articles and chapters on PCIT, has presented papers and workshops at regional, national and international conferences, and has trained over 300 clinicians in evidence-based treatments for early childhood externalizing disorders.
