The Trauma Treatment Training Center (TTTC) at Cincinnati Children's Hospital examined the implementation and effectiveness of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) in community agencies working with high-risk families through an awarded grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. The current study summarizes posttreatment data collected from community clinicians trained by the TTTC. Results include 53 posttreatment outcomes from 23 clinicians in 15 agencies in the United States. Significant improvement was seen on several measures regarding child behavior, child trauma symptoms, child dissociative characteristics, and caregiver stress. Community clinicians trained in PCIT during a five-day workshop did get effective results with even their first PCIT cases.
