Parent Child Interaction Therapy
Fraser Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an intensive treatment program designed to help parents and children together to improve the quality of the parent-child relationship and to teach parents the skills necessary to manage their children's behavior problems. Through assessment, the treatment team can help to determine if PCIT matches child and family needs.
Fraser experts teach parents specific skills and give them the opportunity to practice these skills during therapy. The skills are gradually expanded from structured therapy sessions to structured sessions within the home and then finally to more unstructured sessions in the home and in public.
PCIT serves children, ages 2-7, who are exhibiting chronic behavior problems at home, school, preschool or daycare, and who may be on medication to manage their behavioral problems.
