What is Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)?
Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an innovative, evidence-based program provided out of our Bemidji office. The program is designed to help families with children 2 to 7 years old who exhibit behavior problems that are beyond what is considered normal for their developmental age. PCIT can help children with behavior problems, attention problems, and attachment problems. These children are often described as defiant, un-controllable, overactive, attention-seeking, and/or extremely impulsive. PCIT teaches parents how to improve discipline techniques and at the same time enhance the quality of the parent-child relationship.
Jessica Croatt Niemi, MSSW LICSW, IMH-E(IV) provides Parent Child Interaction Therapy out of our Bemidji office. Families who want to enhance their relationship and learn how to set clear and consistent limits have found PCIT helpful.
