Assessing Parent Training Utilizing a Behavioral Index of Parent-Child Interactions.
Brubakken, David M.; And Others
Evaluated was the effectiveness of a 10-session parent training program to instruct three sets of parents in methods of behavioral management techniques with their emotionally disturbed children (ages 5- to 8-year-old) who were receiving short term treatment in a residential facility. Home visits before and after training recorded rates of compliance by the child with parent requests and types of parent responses. The training program consisted of structured sessions including reading assignments, lectures, discussions, staff demonstrations, parent demonstrations, observing defined behaviors, recording baseline behaviors, implementing behavior modification techniques and measuring the degree of changed behaviors. Results indicated an increase in positive responses by all parents and a significant increase in compliance rates by two of the three children. Results suggested the usefulness of such parent programs in generalizing residential facility induced gains into the natural environment. (DB)
