Karitane has launched a pilot online parenting training program offering support to families in regional and remote NSW struggling with a child's challenging behaviour. Karitane clinical psychologists use a live video link to coach parents as they play with their children, then give support based on the interactions and behaviour they observe. The play-based program, known as Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), is an extension of Karitane's Toddler Clinic, a service that launched more than 10 years ago for families in Sydney's metropolitan areas seeking help for toddlers with aggressive behaviour, persistent tantrums, hyperactivity, defiance and separation anxiety. The philosophy of PCIT is that a child's behaviour improves through strengthening the parent-child relationship and the evidence shows it works. See more
