Abstract [en]

This study examined the effectiveness of a Swedish parent management training (PMT) intervention for parents ofchildren aged 3 to 10 within the context of regular social service. Self-referred parents of 159 children (aged 3 to 10) with conduct problems were randomly assigned to either 11 practitioner-assisted group sessions (PMT-P), or asingle instructional workshop followed by self-administrationof the training material (PMT-S), or a waitlist controlgroup. Intent-to-treat analyses showed that both PMT-Pand PMT-S improved parent competence and reducedchild conduct problems compared to the waitlist atposttest. Both training conditions showed further significantimprovements at the 6-month follow-up. In directcomparison, PMT-P was superior to PMT-S on measuresof child conduct problems at both posttest and follow-up.Improvement in child conduct was mediated by improvementin parent competencies and homework fidelity. The findings in this study have implications for large-scale dissemination of parent management training through different means of delivery.
