Families come to a small playroom with a one-way mirror and observation/coaching room on the other side. The adult caregivers are coached in real time through a bug in their ear, developing mastery in skills to increase warmth and attachment, through focusing on their child's positive behaviors. Additionally, they learn and practice giving directions to their child, and implementing calm, consistent, discipline strategies. Training to provide PCIT will be provided by a Howard Center PCIT trainer.
