Parent Child Interaction Therapy: Evidence-Based Early Intervention for Parents and Children

This webinar held on June 11, 2024, hosted by the National District Attorneys Association, provided an in-depth look at Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), an evidence-based, theoretically grounded therapy model to help parents remain confident, calm, and consistent in their approach to discipline while building secure attachments with their child. The presentation focused on ways that PCIT can help parents who are struggling to address their child's problem behavior (including justice-involved families), reduce youth victimization (particularly physical abuse and neglect by caregivers), and keep children in their homes, in their communities, and out of system involvement.
