Parent-child interaction therapy is not only an effective treatment for childhood conduct problems but also a highly versatile intervention, readily tailored or adapted to meet the needs of families (1) from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures, (2) with a wide range of presenting problems, and (3) in need of services in a variety of settings or formats. The variety of PCIT adaptations that have been investigated is not typical of most parenting interventions. This tremendous versatility raises the question, What components allow PCIT to be so frequently and successfully adapted? This chapter reviews answers to the question and considers steps that must still be taken in order for PCIT to reach the many families in need of services who do not receive them.
