What does treatment look like?

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy for SM (PCIT-SM):

Parent-child interaction therapy for selective mutism (PCIT-SM) is an adaptation of parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT), an evidence-based practice for helping parents learn effective strategies for engaging with their children who have behavioral problems. PCIT and PCIT-SM use positive reinforcement to target desired behaviors (e.g., labeled praises, reflection, behavioral descriptions, and enthusiasm). With PCIT-SM, these skills are targeted toward speaking behaviors. The behavioral principles of PCIT-SM are also intended to address and interrupt the cycle of avoidant behaviors, which is currently maintained by negative reinforcement (e.g., rescuing). The goal of PCIT-SM is to create a positive cycle of talking.

  • Weekly 1 to 2 hour appointments.

  • Live parent coaching
