I had an opportunity to visit Leopoldina Krankenhaus in Schweinfurt, Germany. I was warmly welcomed by the head psychiatrist and PCIT Master Trainer, Wolfgang Briegel, his wife Martine, and the rest of the PCIT team. It was a great experience to learn how PCIT is being implemented in another country. I was able to observe a session and code parent verbalizations (in German!), too! I was also able to practice my German--I haven't spoken the language in so long! I'm so bad at capturing stories through photographs. I realized as I was driving away that I really should have taken photos with the therapists and of the outside of the facilities. I'm sure I'll have another visit in the future--I'll be sure to do that next time! For now, check out their beautiful PCIT set-up:
