Systematic Review of Engagement in Culturally Adapted Parent Training for Disruptive Behavior
Butler, Ashley M.; Titus, Courtney
Journal of Early Intervention, v37 n4 p300-318 Dec 2015
This article reviews the literature reporting engagement (enrollment, attendance, and attrition) in culturally adapted parent training for disruptive behavior among racial/ethnic minority parents of children ages 2 to 7 years. The review describes the reported rates of engagement in adapted interventions and how engagement is analyzed in studies, methods to develop adaptations, and adaptations that have been implemented. Seven studies are identified. Parental engagement varied across and within studies. Only one study examined whether adaptations improved engagement compared with non-adapted intervention. Frequent methods to develop adaptations were building partnerships or conducting interviews/focus groups with minority parents or community members. Adaptations included addressing cultural beliefs (perceptions of parenting skills), values (interdependence), or experiences (immigration) that affect parenting or receptivity to interventions; ensuring racial/ethnic diversity of interventionists; and addressing cultural relevancy and literacy level of materials. Future research should examine engagement in adapted interventions compared with non-adapted interventions and examine factors (e.g., immigration status) that may moderate impact on engagement.
