Effects of Parent Training on Families of Children with Mental Retardation: Increased Burden or Generalized Benefit?
Baker, Bruce L.; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v96 n2 p127-36 Sep 1991
Forty-nine families of children with mental retardation (ages 2-11) were assessed before and after a parent training program. Parents showed small but significant decreases in reports of depression, parent and family problems, overall family stress, and dissatisfaction with the family's adaptability. Family characteristics were predictive of teaching at home one year following training. (Author/JDD)
