Research PCIT: (Herschell) Feasibility and Effectiveness of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy with Victims of Domestic Violence: A Pilot Study

1 credit


Full course description

Since its development, PCIT has been applied to a wide array of childhood problems and has a significant evidence base for families with histories of child physical abuse. The current study extended the existing literature by testing the effectiveness and feasibility of PCIT in an urban domestic violence shelter with community-based clinicians delivering the treatment. A total of nine families completed PCIT (43%). Completion of PCIT was associated with improved child
behavior, parenting practices, and mental health symptoms. Considerations for treatment delivery and future directions are discussed.
