Staff-Child Interaction Therapy
Although PCIT traditionally focuses on coaching parent-child interactions in the clinic, this chapter will discuss the adaptation and application of PCIT principles to child care settings such as shelters, group homes, after-school programs, and day treatment facilities. In such settings, the caregivers are not parents, but rather paid staff members. Thus the interactive training described in this chapter will be referred to as Staff-Child Interaction Therapy, or SCIT.
