How does PCIT work?

PCIT works by the family therapist coaching you from behind  a one-way mirror through a specialized earphone, giving you moment by moment support as you engage in play therapy with your child.  Through collaborative coaching sessions, we will work together to:

  • Improve your child’s behavior
  • Strengthen the relationship between you and your child
  • Increase your child’s frustration tolerance
  • Improve your child’s response to your directions
  • Build your child’s self-esteem
  • Encourage your child’s independence and self-control
  • Improve your child’s ability to pay attention
  • Strengthen your child’s social skills
  • Reduce symptoms of/or eliminate the qualification for a diagnosis of ODD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder.
