Behavioral Intervention for Children (PCIT)

Debbie Wilkerson, LPC

Debbie Wilkerson, LPC, PCIT Certified

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
Is a new program that the OKBTF now offers for behavioral intervention for children
(ages 2 – 7 years) and their parents or caregivers that focuses on decreasing externalizing child behavior problems (e.g., defiance, aggression), increasing child social skills and cooperation, and improving the parent-child attachment relationship. It teaches parents traditional play-therapy skills to use as social reinforcers of positive child behavior and traditional behavior management skills to decrease negative child behavior. Parents are taught and practice these skills with their child in a playroom while coached by a therapist. PCIT is time-unlimited; families remain in treatment until parents have demonstrated mastery of the treatment skills and rate their child’s behavior as within normal limits on a standardized measure of child behavior.

 

The Relationship Enhancement element of PCIT

Teaches the parents how to minimize negative characteristics within the relationship and guides them in developing new behaviors and communication practices that provide support, encouragement, and nurturing.

parent interaction

 

The Strategies for Compliance element of PCIT

Emphasizes effective and safe discipline techniques that can be used to manage the child’s behavior. The parents are encouraged to put these skills into practice until they can readily rely on them. Children who are subjected to these tactics learn how to adapt their behavior accordingly and most families see vast improvement in child behavior and the parent-child relationship.

Children between the ages of two and seven have been shown to benefit the most from this type of treatment.

Re-Emerge

Re-Emerge is a Cognitive Retraining Program that we NOW OFFER.

   Do you suffer from:

  • memory lapses

  • trouble concentrating

  • finding the right words

  • being disorganized

  • feeling like you are in a “fog”

  • impulse control

  • easily distracted

  • slow performance speed

Re-Emerge could be the answer

We  provide computerized tasks to rewire the brain, bridging the damaged areas making new neuro-pathways. These neuro-pathways can reconnect the brain’s functionality, enabling individuals to regain their cognitive abilities. Specially trained oversight therapists can monitor, track and check the users’ progress easily and efficiently, prescribing and assigning follow-up cognitive tasks to be mastered. Cumulative performance scores can be printed out for documentation and reporting of progress, as needed.

DO YOU QUALIFY?

  1. Are you age 18-62 
  2. Do you receive Social Security Disability
  3. You receiving services through the Dept. of Vocational Rehabilitation
  4. Some private insurance reimbursement is available
  5. Private pay plans are available

FINALLY a way for individuals with “chemo-brain” or any brain trauma to improve their cognitive functioning and succeed academically, socially, and become more independent.
