Transforming Life Counseling Center continues its efforts to train clinical members and to expand our clinical knowledge. As Proverbs 27: 17 states, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” Therapists from TLCC come together on a weekly basis to fulfill this truth from Scripture. We build relationships with one another, we train together, we share resources, consult with one another, and actively look for ways to grow our competencies to better serve our community.
One of the ways that we seek to strengthen our skills as therapists is through our Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) Competency Training Program. PCIT is a short-term, specialized behavior management program designed for young children and their families experiencing behavioral and/or emotional difficulties. PCIT works with the child and caregivers to improve overall behavior and to reduce parenting stress. For more information on PCIT, please read our blog “Effective Therapy with Children: Parent-Child Interaction Therapy” that can be found on our website or by clicking the link: http://www.tlccok.com/blog/effective-therapy-with-children-parent-child-interaction-therapy
We are excited to extend the PCIT Competency Training Program to area therapists. This training is a 15-hour program designed to give therapists knowledge and competency in using this very effective treatment with children to help expand their practice and therapeutic skills. PCIT is an evidence-based treatment that is proven effective with children ranging from age 2yrs to 8yrs old. The training includes 15-hrs of CEUs approved by the Oklahoma Board of Behavioral Health for LPC and LMFT licensures and will consist of in-office seminars, live skills training, and following the conclusion of the training program, therapists will have the chance for further supervision through phone consultations. The cost of the training includes the PCIT Protocol Manual, reference resources, training materials, live experiences with clients, ongoing supervision, and a light breakfast with coffee is always provided.
