Resources to help clinicians & researchers implement Parent-Child Interaction Therapy for Older Children 7-10 (PCIT-OC)
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy Adapted for Older Children (PCIT-OC) does not yet have sufficient data to be considered an empirically supported treatment. Though no randomized controlled trials have been completed to date, a small sample size outcome study showed significant changes in parent skills and reductions in problem behavior. The published research development manual is still encouraged to be used for the purposes of:
(1) supporting clinicians in adapting PCIT to an older age range and obtaining clinical feedback about the approach and
(2) stimulating research on this adaptation and assisting researchers with fidelity monitoring.
PCIT-OC is designed to be used by experienced, certified PCIT clinicians who wish to extend their practice to the older child age range (7-10 years) and is intended to be used in conjunction with the PCIT Protocol (Eyberg & Funderburk, 2011). The manual has the most updated information regarding implementation of this adaptation and is meant to replace Chapter 10: Older Children in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (McNeil & Hembree-Kigin, 2010).
The manual has been published on Amazon and all proceeds are being donated to PCIT International. The manual can be purchased at: https://www.amazon.com/Parent-Child-Interaction-Therapy-Adapted-Children/dp/B09DJ56QHS/ref=sr_1_3?crid=14VJS6C3YGC9R&keywords=pcit+adapted+for+older+children&qid=1644530174&sprefix=pcit+adapted+for+older+children%2Caps%2C44&sr=8-3
