Teacher–Child Interaction Therapy for Preschool Classrooms
Research has demonstrated that behavioral improvements in children following completion of PCIT have extended to the classroom setting (McNeil, Eyberg, Eisenstadt, Newcomb, & Funderburk, 1991). And, recent studies have been investigating whether training teachers directly in the use of PCIT skills results in even greater gains at school.
