University of California, Davis, UC Davis - PCIT Training Center

Funding Period: 
[2009 - 2012]
Description: 
The UC Davis–PCIT Training Center project will further the dissemination of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) by developing and testing a web course (PCITWeb) designed to inform professionals who may want to acquire and/or enhance PCIT skill involvement. The center will also develop a Learning Collaborative that focuses on the use of PCIT with young traumatized children and their families, and will create several products to enhance and support clinicians’ use of PCIT in a broad range of settings (e.g., community mental health centers, private practice, and in-home services). Three pathways will be used to disseminate knowledge and skills related to the application of PCIT: 1) the creation of a 10-hour culturally competent web course for mental health providers who serve traumatized children and their families; 2) enrollment of 10 agencies in PCIT Competency Achievement Training to deliver PCIT services and train staff at these agencies to use the 10-hour web courses in their communities; and 3) development of PCIT products that will support the effective use of PCIT. These objectives will be achieved through extensive collaboration with NCTSN members, and will include formation of a PCIT Learning Collaborative, a PCIT Workgroup, and a PCIT Family Consumer group.
