What is it about?

Training mental health providers in evidence-based treatments is important to have best outcomes for families. Our study found that mental health clinicians who attended a 5-day training workshop about Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, either in one long segment or two shorter segments, had increased knowledge of the treatment protocol, felt more confident about using the treatment, and showed better behavior coding skills after completion. These improvements occurred even when trainees had already learned about the treatment previously.
