This study aims to better understand how to best help parents of young children with problem behavior. Problem behaviors vary between and within children, but can include inattention/hyperactivity, tantrums, and/or noncompliance.


If eligible and choose to participate, this study includes:

A baseline assessment which will include asking a series of questions about parent, child and family, as well as parent-child observations.

If eligible for treatment, sessions occur once per week for approximately 8 to 12 weeks. Sessions include new information and lots of practice and discussion about how to make the skills work best for specific families.

After finishing treatment a post-assessment (similar to BL) conducted.

All of the assessments (i.e., video-and audio-recorded), as well as the sessions with a therapist will be recorded (i.e., video recorded).
