Mapping PCIT onto the Landscape of Parent Training Programs for Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder

  • Karen BearssEmail author
Chapter

Abstract

Parent training (PT) is generally synonymous with “evidence-based treatment for children with disruptive behavior” and it is considered to be among the most well-established treatments in child mental health. The recognized struggles parents face in raising a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have led to increased interest in the development of evidence-based parenting interventions for ASD. Due to the complex nature of ASD, PT program development in this population has taken a multifaceted path, targeting a wide range of behaviors including deficits in language, social reciprocity, self-help skills, and joint attention, as well as self-stimulatory and repetitive behaviors. This chapter presents the diverse and complex landscape of PT for individuals with ASD through an illustrative taxonomy of four main categories of programs: care coordination, psychoeducation, parent-mediated interventions for core symptoms, and parent-mediated interventions for maladaptive behaviors, noting that programs specifically targeting disruptive behaviors in this population represent just a small segment of available interventions. The chapter then highlights the unique contributions PCIT brings to the field of parenting interventions in ASD.
