The Parent-Child Interaction (PCI) Feeding Scale is a valid and reliable clinical assessment tool used across disciplines working with parents/caregivers and their infants. The PCI Feeding Scale training will not only teach you how to use this assessment tool, but you’ll also learn a cohesive set of observable behaviors that will change your view of parent-infant relationships. The observational skills you’ll gain provide a strengths-based lens to view the relationship, and identifiable behaviors to look for when assessing preverbal infants and their parents/caregivers. Upon successful completion of this training you will be certified to use this clinical tool, which can support the diagnosis of young children and guide your intervention.
