This controlled effectiveness study compared an enhanced parent management training program (PMT-E) with a regular parent training program (PMT-R). Both programs were part of the routine care at the facilities included in the study. The sample consisted of 42 children aged 3-12 years with conduct problems. The participating families were characterized by risk factors for non-response to treatment, such as parent depression/anxiety, single parenthood and unemployment. Parent ratings of child conduct problems and parent depression/anxiety were collected at baseline and post-intervention. No significant differences were found at baseline between the groups. At posttest large significant effect sizes were found on all outcome measures favoring the PMT-E group, when controlling for differences in sample characteristics. The conclusion was that families at risk for non-response to treatment need sufficient support and training in order to benefit from PMT.
