In this 1-hour PCIT CE Program, Certified PCIT Global Trainers (Drs. Alicia Meyer and Amber Farrington) provide an overview of trauma and PTSD in young children, including statistics about the scope of the problem. This program discusses the Best Practice standards for the treatment of trauma in children and compares designated treatment models. This presentation provides an overview of the newly proposed Trauma Directed Interaction adaptation to the PCIT model. Finally, the presentation discusses some of the common criticisms of using PCIT with traumatized children, with a particular emphasis on children’s reactions to being actively ignored, placed in the timeout chair, and placed in the backup room. Research based explanations are provided as to how and why PCIT is not retraumatizing to children, even those with extensive trauma histories. Learning Objectives: At the end of this program, you should be able to: 1) Describe at least 2 statistics related to childhood trauma 2) Identify the 3 Best Practice treatments for childhood trauma 3) Describe the general format of the proposed TDI phase of PCIT 4) Describe how PCIT meets the standards for healthy parenting practices, per Baumrind’s research 5) List one of the reasons why PCIT is not retraumatizing to children with trauma histories
