Condition

Emotional and behavioural/conduct problems in childhood, parent-child relationships

Intervention

Participants will be randomly assigned, at a 2:1 ratio, to an intervention or control (waiting list) group.

IY Basic parent programme
12 weekly group sessions (2.5 hours) will be held. There will be approximately 9 groups with 12 participants in each group.

The intervention promotes positive parenting by increasing positive child behaviour through praise and incentives. Parent-child relationships are improved through the promotion of child-directed play. The intervention provides parents with non-aversive tactics for dealing with problem behaviour. A collaborative approach using role play, modelling, group discussions and analysis of video material is used and parents are helped to identify social learning principles.
