In-Home Parent-Child Interaction Therapy: Clinical Considerations
Masse, Joshua J.; McNeil, Cheryl B.
Child & Family Behavior Therapy, v30 n2 p127-135 Jun 2008
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an empirically-supported behavioral parent training program designed to be administered in a clinic or laboratory-based setting. Recently, an empirical investigation revealed that in-home PCIT produced comparable results as the PCIT trials conducted in more controlled environments (this issue). Administering PCIT in a home setting carries both drawbacks and advantages. This article provides an overview of both the positive and negative clinical aspects of conducting in-home PCIT and presents effective solutions to potential treatment barriers.
