Description: Parent training program designed to inform and teach parents how to manage their child's behavior. The program includes therapeutic components to facilitate parental understanding and acceptance of their child. The program has 10 components that reviews the basics of behavior management strategies, how to incorporate the strategies in public and for the future as well as providing a booster session to review progress and troubleshoot problems with execution. Either in a group or on an individual basis, the sessions are a mix between lecture, interactive discussion, and exercises. Sessions can occur on a weekly basis spanning 6-12 weeks.
Design: Five control studies -- two studies combined with pharmacology. Improved functioning in the child's behavior and the parent-child relationship. Environmental -- improved parent functioning (decreased parenting stress and increased parenting self-esteem). In comparison with other treatments, the program was shown to perform better on only a few indicators (family functioning) and with certain types of children (comorbid anxiety). Current study showed mixed results (not published).
