About PCIT Therapist Training

PCIT training at the Center for Children, Families and Communities adheres to the PCIT International training requirements. These requirements were developed by a committee of expert clinicians, trainers, and researchers in order to maintain high standards of training and promote the effective dissemination of PCIT.

Clinicians who successfully complete the training will be eligible to apply for PCIT certification.

PCIT training for therapists includes

  • 2 hours of pre-training consultation with clinicians or agency administrators to facilitate the development of a sustainable PCIT program.​
  • 40-hour workshop with didactic, case review, and experiential components—focusing the active practice of skills with parents & children.
  • ​PCIT Protocol Manual (Eyberg & Funderburk, 2011).
  • ​A full year of biweekly clinical consultation.​
  • Manual of the Dyadic Parent-Child Interaction Coding System-IV (the primary assessment tool required in PCIT).
  • Review of 10 video-recorded therapy sessions.
  • ​​​Written and live feedback on therapists’ progress.
