Core Evidence

Consistent with a scientist-practitioner approach, studies of PCIT have sought to answer clinically-meaningful questions: How is PCIT helpful for parents and their children? Do the results generalize to untreated settings and children? How long do treatment benefits last? Can the model be adapted to help other families? Is PCIT appropriate for socially and culturally diverse families? Is PCIT cost-effective? A significant body of literature is now available to support that PCIT is an effective intervention for changing parenting skills and improving child behavior.
