  • ​The Self-Paced, Online PCIT Training Course is the first step to Certification in PCIT, and the course includes the same presentations and foundational material presented in the Virtual or In-Person PCIT trainings.


  • The PCIT Online Certification Training Experience combines pre-recorded online instructional presentations with regular, one-hour face-to-face instruction with Certified PCIT Global Trainers.

  • The self-paced, Online PCIT Training Course is similar to an online blended course offered by a university where trainees review instructional material independently and engage in weekly discussions with other trainees and PCIT expert trainers. 

  • The Self-Paced PCIT Training Course allows trainees to individualize their training experience - "learn when you learn best" - while still participating in a virtual classroom where they can learn from other trainees and receive ongoing guidance by Certified PCIT Global Trainers.​​​


  • Bonus modules for the Online PCIT Training include:

    • Delivering PCIT services with children who have experienced trauma

    • Addressing homework challenges

    • PCIT research

    • Adaptations of PCIT

    • Logistics of providing telehealth PCIT services (often referred to as iPCIT).


  • Participants will learn (and practice utilizing) the empirically-supported PCIT protocol that was developed by Dr. Sheila Eyberg.  The trainings will help guide participants ​through every PCIT treatment session in the PCIT Protocol (from intake to graduation).

  • Participants will learn how to code parent-child interactions using the Dyadic Parent-Child Interaction Coding System (DPICS).  Trainees will practice using the DPICS coding system in a variety of formats (e.g., live coding, review quizzes, pre-recorded parent-child videos). 

  • Participants will learn both basic and more advanced PCIT coaching skills for both the CDI and PDI phases of PCIT.  Trainees will practice the skills during role plays and mock PCIT treatment sessions.

  • PCIT training also includes presentations and discussions on a wide variety of topics, including but not limited to:

    • Identifying PCIT clients and establishing community partnerships

    • Starting a PCIT case

    • Technology options for PCIT

    • Delivery of PCIT services across a wide variety of formats (observation room, in-room, in-home, telehealth - referred to as "iPCIT")  

  • Overall, participants will be able to "learn when they learn best" and apply their knowledge in regular, live consultation calls that are engaging, informative, and fun!

  • During the one-year of Online PCIT Training, participants will meet twice a month, as a group, with Certified PCIT Global Trainers.  These one-hour consultation calls will occur at the same day and time every month via Zoom.

  • Participants receive a customized PCIT consultation training experience that matches their current status with PCIT clients.  That is, we have developed three different consultation calls that will guide trainees from intake to graduation: (1) Identifying & Starting PCIT Cases; (2) CDI Phase ; and (3) PDI Phase.  All three calls are offered at the same day and time each month so trainees can progress through the PCIT model throughout the year without rearranging their schedules.

  • Participants will discuss (and practice) a wide variety of PCIT topics during consultation calls, including but not limited to, the following:

    • PCIT protocol questions and session review

    • DPICS coding questions

    • Additional DPICS coding practice

    • Case specific consultation

    • CDI and PDI coaching challenges

    • Client challenges (e.g., homework completion)

    • ​Logistical and/or technology concerns​

    • PCIT certification procedures​​​


  • Best of both worlds - trainees review instructional material independently at a time that works best for them, and then trainees engage in discussions about the content with other trainees and a PCIT expert trainer.


  • This allows trainees to learn about PCIT skills at any time of the day or night, and then practice the newly acquired PCIT skills through role plays, mock sessions, and other related activities with a live group.

  • With the PCIT Online training course, trainees learn at their own pace, providing opportunities to slow down and better understand key concepts and skills which can reduce anxiety or frustration.

  • The PCIT Online training gives trainees regular opportunities to ask questions and receive immediate feedback while learning PCIT skills.

  • Cost Effectiveness - the Online PCIT Course allows trainees to avoid travel costs.

  • Convenience - Participants can access the online PCIT training materials 24/7.
