The Cooperation Chart originated from the creative insights of Dr. Cheryl McNeil when she was raising her two sons. Now, her boys are successful young adults, a testament to Dr. McNeil’s parenting expertise. Amidst the formidable challenges presented by the pandemic, an impactful partnership emerged between Dr. McNeil and Dr. Suzi Naguib. Together, they undertook the task of animating the Cooperation Chart, translating its principles into an engaging video presentation. Within her own household, Dr. Naguib seamlessly infused the chart’s tenets into the routines of her two daughters, meticulously documenting the entire process. This ambitious project was geared towards amplifying the accessibility of this intervention for a wide audience encompassing parents, clinicians, and educators alike.
Today, the Cooperation Chart is being published in a book chapter in the “Clinical Handbook of Advancements in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy.” This book addresses clinical considerations for PCIT clinicians with common presenting concerns as well as special populations. The Cooperation Chart provides resources and clinical supports for therapists to incorporated into their PCIT practice.
