Upcoming PCIT Trainings
Certification in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy begins by selecting the PCIT training modality that best fits your learning style and availability. The content across training formats remains the same - trainees in each format learn how to use and implement the current, empirically-supported 2011 PCIT Protocol that was developed by Dr. Sheila Eyberg.
