Ligonier Valley Learning Center offers many different types of Mental Health Services.
Counseling Services for Children, Youth and Adults
It is a common misconception to think that only serious ill or "crazy" people need counseling help. Studies show that over eighty percent of people can benefit from counseling at some time in their lives. So, it is normal to need counseling when special concerns or difficult feelings arise related to depression, stress, relationships, etc.
Counseling provides a special setting in which we can learn about ourselves. This can help us to be more effective in our relationships with others and with ourselves. It takes time, helpful observations and support to recognize and change our ways of living.
Seeking the advice and perspective of a mental health specialist can help you regain your certainty and help you rebuild your confidence in the course of action that is right for you.

Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
At Ligonier Valley Learning Center we offer Individual Therapy for children, youth & adults who suffer from anxiety, grief, trauma, depression, and relationship issues in a comfortable and confidential setting.
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is a dyadic behavioral intervention for children (ages 2-7 years) and their parents or caregivers that focuses on decreasing externalizing child behavior problems (e.g., defiance, aggression), increasing child social skills and cooperation, and improving the parent-child attachment relationship. It teaches parents traditional play-therapy skills to use as social reinforcers of positive child behavior and traditional behavior management skills to decrease negative child behavior. Parents are taught and practice these skills with their child in a playroom while coached by a therapist. The coaching provides parents with immediate feedback on their use of the new parenting skills, which enables them to apply the skills correctly and master them rapidly. PCIT is time-unlimited; families remain in treatment until parents have demonstrated mastery of the treatment skills and rate their child’s behavior as within normal limits on a standardized measure of child behavior. Therefore treatment length varies but averages about 14 weeks, with hour-long weekly sessions. PCIT sessions are led by a trained Licensed Mental Health Professional at the Latrobe Outpatient Clinic. An intake can be scheduled for the program, by calling the main Counseling Center office at 724-238-5556.
