LC is a parenting intervention that helps caregivers identify and respond to children’s emotional needs and behaviors in a way that builds connection and warmth and promotes children’s emotional competence and sense of emotional security. LC skills are taught through a combination of didactics, role-plays, and live in-session coaching—in which the therapist serves as a coach as the caregiver talks with their child about emotionally arousing life events—and structured home practice. LC is currently developed for English- and Spanish-speaking families and clinicians.
