Self-Directed Behavioural Family Intervention
Morawska, Alina; Sanders, Matthew R.
International Journal of Behavioral Consultation and Therapy, v2 n3 p332-340 2006
Behavioural family intervention is effective for the prevention and treatment of a wide range of emotional and behavioural problems in children. There is a growing need to address the accessibility of these services. This paper reviews the literature on self-directed interventions designed to help parents manage difficult child behaviours. Evidence regarding the efficacy of interventions is reviewed, and some of the difficulties associated with self-directed programs are discussed. The Self-directed Triple P Program is highlighted as an example of an efficacious and effective behavioural family intervention fitting into a larger multi-level model of family intervention. The discussion of the efficacy and effectiveness of self-directed interventions has implications for service delivery of parenting programs.
