Institute for Family Development – Bremerton Office
PCIT is a skill-building program focused on providing stability, predictability and the teaching of new skills to help a parent or caregiver to enhance the parent-child relationship and to effectively discipline a child safely and appropriately while addressing and providing for age appropriate needs. PCIT is an evidence based treatment that works with the parent and child together in the same room. There are two components to the PCIT program: The Relationship Enhancement Component and the Discipline Component. PCIT also teaches skills that help the parent or caregiver to better understand ways in which their own reactions to situations can impact child behaviors. The treatment is usually completed in three or four months. In this site, PCIT is offered in-home.
