Social Learning Based System for Parent Training.
Edge, Denzil
The effective use of parents as behavior change agents in the modification of their children's behavior is discussed. Identified are four parent training steps: (1) parents learn to identify and record specific behaviors: (2) parents learn through consultation and reading how to effect behavior change: (3) parents count behaviors, note behavioral consequences, and specify a member of the family to deliver the consequence; and (4) parents collect data and learn how to maintain the changed behavior. Two case studies demonstrate the use of these steps in effecting behavior change. It is noted that parent training in small groups is more effective and efficient than individual parent training. Home settings for the parent training programs are seen to be more advantageous because this is where the behaviors occur and where the change is expected. (PHR)
