PCIT: Parent Child Interactive Therapy: PCIT is an empirically-supported treatment for conduct-disordered young children that focuses on improving the quality of the parent-child relationship and changing parent-child interaction patterns. In PCIT, parents are taught specific skills to establish a nurturing and secure relationship with their child while increasing their child's prosocial behavior and decreasing negative behavior.
