Studio 10 - Understanding toddler 'big emotions' and Parent Child Interaction Therapy 

2020-07-01

Our team of Registered Nurses, Clinical Psychologists and Social Workers work with families using a model called Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).  PCIT is based on play and aims to increase positive behaviours and reduce the negative behaviours of your toddler by strengthening the parent-child relationship and giving you some strategies to better manage your child.

We work with families with children 15 months to 4 years who are displaying behaviour problems, these include:

  • Physical and verbal aggression
  • Non-compliance
  • Over-activity
  • Tantrums
  • Destructive behaviour
  • Hyperactivity
  • Sibling rivalry
  • Anxiety and withdrawal

The average treatment program is 6 to 12 weekly sessions for 1 hour. Regular attendance and daily practise of the skills at home are necessary for you and your child to obtain the best results.

More exciting new!  Congratulations to both Jane Kohlohoff and Susan Morgan on their most recent publication in the Journal of Infant Mental Health, this unique program addresses a child’s behavioural problems through focussing on enriching the relationship between the parent and the child. An amazing breakthrough for the younger child age group.
