ECIC Team's Contribution

Our ECIC team has conducted studies to understand extensions of PCIT to diverse settings and populations as well as to understand the best methods to train clinicians in PCIT.

A sample of publications is provided below because they demonstrate the ECIC team’s:

  1. clinical and implementation expertise
  2. ability to collaborate and see projects to completion, and
  3. established national/international reputation for PCIT implementation.

This careful study not only documents our training team’s effectiveness, it also allows us to use data to refine our training processes for continuous quality improvement.

Below are sample publications from ECIC members as well as our community and academic partners from the last 3 years.
