PCIT training centerThe UC Davis Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) Training Center uses telemedicine to train professionals in evidence-based therapies that can improve parent relationships with their children.

PCIT is an evidence-based treatment technique for children with disruptive behaviors. Therapists coach parents on how to build a positive relationship with their children and manage their behavior. UC Davis behavioral health specialists use telemedicine to coach other therapists about how to effectively provide PCIT in their own communities.

The training model for PCIT consists of a 10 hour web course that thoroughly explains the basic elements of the therapy program and the treatment protocol, followed by about nine hours of experiential training (during which therapists provide PCIT to real clients).
