Parent Child Interactive Therapy

Programs that offer PCIT, a behavior management program that helps parents learn new ways to eliminate destructive behaviors in young children such as physical aggression, swearing, defiance, and disrespect to adults.

It combines one-on-one coaching for parents by a trained PCIT therapist using structured child-parent play activities. The therapist uses a two-way mirror to watch the family interact and provides continual, real-time feedback, directions and encouragement through a hearing-aid-size radio receiver worn by the parent. Parents are first taught how to give praise for positive behavior and, when the parent and child have mastered the skills and the relationship has improved, move to the second phase of the process where discipline is introduced for negative behaviors.

Therapists providing counseling and other services tailor therapeutic interventions specific to each woman's PMADs diagnosis. But there are general recommendations that can be incorporated to support each client's ability to benefit from the interventions that are specific to her individual PMAD diagnosis which may include normalizing and destigmatizing the situation (reassuring the woman that it is normal to feel ambivalent during pregnancy and motherhood), prioritizing sleep, encouraging exercise and finally, developing a strong social network which may involve other women experiencing PMADs, a general "new moms group", or activities that focus on interests other than motherhood.
