Beth Troutman, PhD, clinical professor at the University of Iowa, trains therapists in Integration of Working Models of Attachment in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (IoWA-PCIT). Training is conducted in small groups (maximum of 8 therapists per trainer and maximum of 12 therapists per training group). The year long training involves a total of 64 hours of face-to-face contact and monthly consultation calls. Participants learn to view parent-child interactions from the perspective of attachment theory and behaviorism. Participants learn to coach parents in two types of dyadic intervention: child directed interaction (CDI) and parent directed interaction (PDI). Participants learn to code parent and child behavior using the Dyadic Parent-Child Interaction Coding System (DPICS-IV) and in a clinical version of preschool attachment coding.  Participants learn to use observations of parent-child interactions, parent verbalizations and attachment to tailor their parent coaching.

Core Competencies of IoWA-PCIT therapists

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.
