Beth Troutman, PhD, clinical professor at the University of Iowa, trains in Integration of Working Models of Attachment in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (IoWA-PCIT). Training is typically conducted in small groups (maximum of 8 therapists per trainer) and involves a total of 64 hours of face-to-face contact and monthly consultation calls with Troutman. Participants learn about child directed interaction (CDI) and parent directed interaction (PDI). They also learn to code parent and child behavior using the Dyadic Parent-Child Interaction Coding System (DPICS-IV) and to coach parents in conducting child directed interaction (CDI) and parent directed interaction (PDI) with their child. They learn to evaluate attachment and incorporate observations of attachment into their parent coaching.
In order to participate in parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT) training, providers must have a master’s degree or higher in the mental health field.
For more information or to schedule training in parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT), contact Dr. Troutman at 319-384-3236 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
