Intervention

This study applies psychological theories and practice to the problem of client non-attendance at parenting services.
The intervention is in the form of a brief twenty to thirty minute session of cognitive behavioural problem solving before clinical services commence, delivered during a routine home visit which is part of the usual service delivery pattern.
The control group will undergo a similar period of additional time with a staff member but this time will be spent in gaining additional information through naturalistic observation of the family.
Clients who have been referred or self referred for parenting group services will undergo the standard pre- intervention assessment in the form of paper and pencil psychometric tests and these will be again administered following service delivery.
Hypotheses will be tested using data on actual session attendance by clients and through the psychometric data routinely collected.
