Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an empirically-supported treatment for young children with emotional and behavioral disorders that places emphasis on improving the quality of the parent-child relationship and changing parent-child interaction patterns.
PCIT International was created to promote fidelity in the practice of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy through well-conducted research, training, and continuing education of therapists and trainers.

The goals of PCIT International are to:
Foster the growth and expertise of the network of local, regional, national, and international PCIT therapists
Highlight the research activities and clinical innovations developed by the PCIT community
Empower parents to make changes that will lead to a nurturing and secure relationship with their children
Improve the lives of children and families worldwide through the provision of sound, empirically-based assessment and treatment.
