The workshop is a part of the specialized program in cognitive behavioral therapy and is taught in English.
This workshop will discuss the history, delivery, and variations of parent-focused interventions for child behavior problems, especially externalizing problems.
Day 1 of the workshop will focus on a description of the history and delivery of parent-focused interventions with the morning devoted to parent behavior management training, and the afternoon session addressing variations on parent-focused or parent-assisted interventions for children that affect academic performance, friendship formation, and the reduction of family conflict.
Day 2 of the workshop will explore the evidence-base for existing parent-focused interventions as well as barriers to implementation. Innovations and solutions to common problems will be discussed. Finally, controversies that impact our ability to disseminate evidence-based practices to other professionals as well as families will also be discussed.
