IoWA PCIT Training

This training is closed.

This year long training provides mental health providers with the training and consultation needed to deliver IoWA-PCIT. Providers learn: 

  • To administer and interpret standardized assessments of parent-child interaction based on attachment and behavioral principles.
  • To administer and interpret standardized assessments of disruptive behavior.
  • To coach parents in Child-Directed Interaction (CDI) and Parent-Directed Interaction (PDI). 

Providers begin delivering IoWA-PCIT following completion of Part I of the training (April 15-19, 2024). Monthly consultation calls and Part II of the training (August 5-7, 2024) provide support for implementation of IoWA-PCIT including patient-specific coaching on attachment types and presenting problems.

Participants must have a Master's degree or higher in the mental health field.
Training will be limited to 12 participants.
