Changes in quality of verbalization of parent in Case 1 and Case 2. The parents’ verbalization was scored using the DPICS-IV during 5 min of CLP in pre- and post-treatment. The percentage of the quality of verbalization is shown. Statements were classified into three groups: statements promoting positive interaction (labeled and unlabeled praises, reflections, and descriptions), statements promoting negative interaction (questions, criticisms, commands), and neutral talk (other statements).
