Parent-Child Interaction Therapy: Can a Manualized Treatment be Functional?

The Behavior Analyst Today 2001, Spring, 2, 2

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is a manualized treatment that contains two separate phases with certain skills (e.g., praise) that are taught to all clients. PCIT has been criticized in the behavior analytic literature for being an approach that is not individualized for each client, that does not use functional assessment, and that does not provide functional alternatives for behaviors. This paper will address each of these criticisms and provide evidence that a manualized treatment can be functional. Specifically, PCIT is an individualized treatment that is consistent with applied behavior analytical principles. For example, PCIT includes informal functional assessment, uses data to guide treatment, teaches functionally equivalent behaviors, and addresses generalization. Moreover, PCIT addresses each of these areas with the parent as well as the child. **********
