The purpose of this study is to examine the immediate and long-term effects of a prevention program in children at risk for developing conduct problems and antisocial behavior.

Description

Participants are randomly assigned to a year-long family-based intervention or to a no contact control group. The intervention focuses on improving parenting practices, parent-child interactions, and child social competence.
