Active Parenting: A Trainer's Manual.
Leavitt, Shelley E.
Written for professionals and paraprofessionals involved in counseling, educating, or providing treatment or other services to parents and children, this manual details a training program for parents having difficulty managing their child's behavior. The program consists of eight weekly 2-hour group meetings, followed by individual consultations with each parent or family. The format of the group meetings includes basic didactic instruction; open discussion; live and, if possible, videotaped examples of correct and incorrect parent/child interactions; and structured practice of interaction skills. In individual consultations, the parent and consultant meet to develop treatment goals, plan specific strategies of intervention, and discuss solutions to problems. Materials related to program preparation and assessment measures are appended, along with weekly programs, behavior charts, and home programs. (MP)
