NEST and PCIT: Programs of UAMS


The Arkansas Network for Early Stress and Trauma is a
program administered by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.  Children ages 5 and under who have experienced some type of trauma and their families are eligible to participate.  Families receive evidence-based child trauma treatments and support.  For more information, contact TBA.

Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is a short-term, evidence-based treatment for children ages two to seven who are struggling with challenging feelings and behaviors.  PCIT helps to improve the parent-child relationship, builds the bond between parent and child, and, in turn, helps to improve the child’s behavior.  PCIT has been used successfully for many years and has a wealth of research supporting its use for various problems and situations.  For parents in northeast Arkansas, call Dr. Rebekah Evans at 870-972-4859.  For parents in central Arkansas, call TBA.
