PCIT Basic Training March/June 2018 Cohort

Cincinnati, Ohio
Monday, March 19, 2018

The Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children

The first session is a 4-day workshop covering the basics of PCIT, coaching strategies and the first phase of treatment: the Child Directed Interaction (CDI) with a short overview of the second phase Parent-Directed Interaction (PDI).

The second session is a 3-day workshop, scheduled approximately 8-10 weeks after the initial session, reviewing basics of PCIT and CDI but focusing on the 2nd phase of treatment; the Parent Directed Interaction (PDI).

Training sessions are limited to 6-12 trainees.  In addition to instruction, trainees will receive the PCIT 2011 Protocol, DPICS-IV Clinical Coding Manual, DPICS-IV Clinical Workbook and additional useful clinical materials.

After the training, participation in the bi-weekly 24 (1) hour group consultation phone calls are required for each trainee.   Calls take place every two weeks over the course of one year.  Trainee needs to attend at least 75% of the calls to qualify for certification.  Calls focus on the implementation of the model with clients and complex client issues that can emerge.  Note that training requirements state that calls take place through the completion of 2 cases or for the duration of one year.  If a trainee completes 2 cases prior to one year, we remain available to the trainee for the duration of the one-year time frame.  Also note that after one year from the first day of training, bi-weekly calls stop.  As such, it is strongly recommended that trainees have several PCIT cases identified at the outset of training and a system is in place in order to ensure ongoing PCIT referrals.  If a trainee wishes to continue with calls after the year, then a per call fee will be assessed.

Video review of four sessions is required.  Also note that after one year from the first day of training, video review will stop.  If a trainee wishes to continue with video reviews after the year, then a per video fee will be assessed and will include both viewing the video and giving feedback.

General trainer availability (email or phone) in between consultation calls for one year is available.
