Therapists and Supervision

Therapists in the Parent Child Training Clinic are advanced doctoral students in the clinical science program in the department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University. All students are closely supervised by Indiana University faculty. Other advanced students also provide the therapists with helpful suggestions. Your family’s confidential information will be carefully maintained and protected throughout treatment.


The IU Parent Child Clinic specializes in a treatment approach called Parent Behavior Training. This form of family therapy has been scientifically tested and found to be effective for children with a range of behavior problems. The diagram depicted below displays a general framework for our treatment. You can expect to see most, if not all of the session topics depicted here over a 12-16 week period. Different elements may be emphasized in different families. Approach2
