PCIT National Trainer Requirements

Parent Child Interaction Therapy National Trainers (PCIT-NT) are clinicians who have met all of the PCIT & TCIT Training Program PCIT Certified Therapist (PCIT-C) and Agency Trainer (PCIT-AT) credential standards.  These individuals have then received additional PCIT training to be qualified to teach and supervise therapists at their own program or agency, and across the United States.

Why Become Certified as a Trainer?
Certification has been developed in response to therapists, agencies, and third-party payers who have long asked how PCIT providers can document they have met a set of standards for competent delivery of the treatment. Certification is one way to promote the effective dissemination of PCIT nationally and internationally.
