Empirically supported treatments (ESTs) is defined operationally as evidence-based treatments following the listing of empirically validated psychological treatments reported by the American Psychological Association. Using treatment guidelines in therapy, and the problems associated with using ESTs in managed care psychotherapy (where not all guides are consistent) are discussed. Research and treatment are summarized for the following diagnostic categories of parenting problems: thumbsucking, nailbiting, encopresis (fecal soiling), enuresis (incontinence), aggression in boys, childhood oppositional disorder, and psychosomatic illnesses in children. Each topic includes a discussion of the disorder or problem with its negative consequences, a brief overview of the most pertinent research on it, and a comprehensive outline of the treatment approach.
