Full Description

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.

Participants will receive the PCI Feeding Scale manual.
