Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, Omaha, is hosting the 1st Biennial Midwest Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) Conference in 2018, co-provided by Iowa PCIT and Project Harmony. The goal of this conference is to provide continuing education and networking for new and experienced PCIT providers. Children’s Hospital & Medical Center is excited to offer engaging keynote speakers and relevant topics for our local Midwest community as well as the larger community of PCIT therapists.

This first year’s theme is “Engaging Families, Engaging Systems.” We know that PCIT is effective, but we also know that there are many reasons that children and families are not always able to access or complete these services and that the many systems surrounding children can have a significant impact on the accessibility and feasibility of PCIT. The aim of this year’s conference is to focus on factors that enhance family engagement and increase awareness and collaboration with a range of child-serving systems (e.g., schools, primary care, child welfare, juvenile justice).

The four Keynote Speakers are:

Sheila Eyberg, PhD, ABPP
President, PCIT International
Professor Emeritus, University of Florida
John Paul Abner, PhD
Professor of Psychology
Milligan College
PCIT International Certified Master Trainer
Member, PCIT International Training Committee

CAARE Diagnostic and Treatment Center
UC Davis Children’s Hospital
Beth Troutman, PhD, ABPP

University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine
Developer and Executive Director, IoWA-PCIT
