Core Elements and Treatment Goals of PCIT-T
Reviews required therapeutic interventions consistent with the implementation of the PCIT-T model. This includes integration of emotion regulation skills with the acronym of CARES developed from attachment theory used for both toddlers and caregivers. Strategies of cognitive behavioral theory are also reviewed with the skills taught to caregivers with the acronym PRIDE in addition to other specific skill-based interventions. Specific treatment goals are presented in table form with the corresponding intervention that targets the area/description for desired change.
