Who we are

PCIT is a 12-18 session parenting program created for children and their families. PCIT teaches you to manage your child’s difficult behaviors, while having fun and improving your child’s good behaviors. PCIT can also help you reduce stress that you may be experiencing as a parent.

What is PCIT?

What we do

PCIT coaches and families meet once each week for a one-hour appointment. The length of treatment depends on how quickly you learn PCIT skills, and how quickly your child’s behavior gets better.

PCIT starts with you following your child’s lead during play. You will be taught how to praise, describe, reflect, and imitate your child’s behavior. These skills will help improve your relationship with your child and your child’s behavior.

Next, PCIT helps you learn to use commands that work with your child. It also helps you learn to use calm discipline that works. Your PCIT coach will help you learn how to manage your child’s behaviors in many different places. As a part of PCIT, we tailor services to meet the needs of your family.

Who we serve

We serve families with children primarily between the ages of 2 and 7 who are experiencing significant behaviour problems. If you are a family with a child between ages 8 and 12 and have a history with child protective services, we may also be able to serve your family but we ask that you contact us to learn more about your needs.

Who is PCIT for?
