The Whole Child will be celebrating its 60th anniversary this fall. Over the last 60 years The Whole Child has implemented several programs to addresses the needs of the children and families we serve.

The Whole child is proud to announce their latest evidence based program being offered at our Headquarters.

PCIT works with caregivers and their children ages 2-5* to improve the quality of the adult-child relationship. PCIT is a two-part program.  The first part is Relationship Enhancement it’s where therapists coach caregivers to increase positive and supportive communication with their child through play and praise.  The second part is Strategies to Improve Compliance, teaches caregivers effective child-management skills such as giving clear commands and following through with commands. Using an earpiece, therapists coach caregivers on specific skills to manage their child’s behavioral problems. Caregivers have the opportunity to practice their skills through a one-way mirror and are provided with real-time support to help them master the skills in a supportive environment before attempting to apply their techniques in their home.
