Graves, Teresa; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v56 n2 p246-50 Apr 1988
Evaluated efficacy of parental problem-solving training in a behavioral weight-reduction program for obese children. Assigned children and their parents to problem-solving, behavioral, and instruction-only weight-loss groups. Children in the problem-solving group lost significantly more weight and maintained the weight loss better. Child weight loss correlated with increases in parental problem-solving ability.
