Children, like all of us, are motivated by positive attention and reciprocity in relationships. Positive feedback from our boss helps us to do our job better. A compliment from a friend or co-worker sets a positive mood for the whole day. A friend who listens to your experience of a bad day helps get you through it. As adults when we feel valued, important and good about ourselves we are motivated to be our best. The same is true for children. This is the foundation of the PCIT (Parent Child Interaction Therapy) program.
