Intentions : « The present study is intended to add to the existing literature on the effectiveness and acceptability of parent training interventions such as videotape therapy (VT) and conjoint behavioral concultation (CBC), as well as address the gap in the literature regarding parenting practices. The purpose of the present research is to examine the effectiveness and acceptability of CBC and VT in improving six children’s problem behaviors. » (p. 12)

« This study examined the effectiveness and acceptability of conjoint behavioral consultation (CBC) and videotape therapy (VT) in the remediation of behavior problems in children. Further, this investigation sought to examine changes in parental practices such as levels of involvement, limit setting, and autonomy granting, following participation in either CBC or VT. An A/B desing was used and participants inclued six boys between the ages of three and nine, and their parents. Based on parental observations in the home, children in both conditions evidenced a reduction in their target behaviors from baseline to treatment (effect sizes=-0.10 to -3.27). Parental perceptions of treatment acceptability of both interventions were high at pretest (M=62.57, SD=3.95) and at posttest (M= 63.37, SD=5.09) for the entire sample. Overall, parents perceived themself as involved in their children’s lives, as well as able to set limits for them and promote their autonomy. The theoretical and practical implications of these findings, limitations of the study, and future research directions are discussed. » (p. 2)
