Child behavior problems are a concern for parents and teachers alike and are associated with later academic and behavioral difficulties. Parents' participation in their children's schooling has been shown to help reduce problem behaviors over time. Research indicates that parents are more likely to participate in their children's schooling when parents have high quality relationships with teachers. One intervention aimed at improving children's behavior through enhancing both parents' participation in school and their relationships with teachers is Conjoint Behavioral Consultation (CBC; Sheridan & Kratochwill, 2008). CBC is a strength-based, structured, indirect model of service delivery wherein parents and teachers collaboratively participate in a problem-solving process to promote positive and consistent behavioral outcomes for children. Although it is clear that CBC improves the quality of parent-teacher relationships, the manner in which such relationships shape both "why" and "when" parents participate in children's schooling remains unexplored. The primary goal of this research was to investigate how the quality of parent-teacher relationships may exert an influence on the effect of CBC on parents' participation in problem solving by examining two possible pathways: mediation and moderation. The results of this study revealed that the quality of parent-teacher relationships acted both as a mediator and a moderator of the effects of CBC on parents' participation in problem solving.
