ATSA Clinicians are Certified Trainers and Therapists in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy Adapted for Selective Mutism (PCIT-SM)
What is PCIT-SM?
PCIT-SM is a specialized approach that combines parent-child interactions to build rapport and self-confidence in both parent and child (Child-Directed Interaction) and provide an ideal foundation from which to step out of one's comfort zone and approach the fear of speaking (Verbal-Directed Interaction). By working with both parent and child, this method treats the child's ecosystem so that they can generalize their talking across people, places, and activities. This method can also be adapted to older ages. See more out the Evidence-Based Treatments ATSA uses here.
