This paper discusses the processes of tailoring and adapting empirically supported treatments (ESTs) for application to new populations, using examples from the five papers in this special issue on innovative approaches to parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT). The applications of PCIT in this issue represent a range of approaches to tailoring and adapting ESTs in ways likely to maintain and improve upon efficacy or efficiency in the new population. The discussion emphasizes the ways in which the new applications maintain the theoretical and empirical foundation of PCIT and its core defining features as they address new populations, target problems, belief systems, and settings.
