Approved for 3 Continuing Education Hours

Join The Ohio State University College of Social Work for a free webinar introducing participants to Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), an evidence-based treatment developed for young children (2-7 years) with behavioral and emotional disorders. PCIT teaches behavioral parent training skills and interventions that seek to improve the quality of the parent-child relationship and change negative parent-child interaction patterns. In this training, participants will be introduced to PCIT’s theoretical underpinnings, clinical model, and core interventions. Didactic instruction, video, and clinical demonstration will be used to demonstrate some of the basic skills used in PCIT.


  • Describe theoretical underpinnings and clinical applications of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
  • Describe primary goals of PCIT, methods used, and how this approach differs from other behavioral parent training programs
  • Describe standard assessment and coding procedures used in PCIT.
