Abstract

This study sought to differentiate between two models of parent training in terms of effectiveness: Parent Effectiveness Training and a behavior modification child management program. Participants were 41 parents who volunteered to participate in a course on how to be a better parent; most were of high educational and socioeconomic status. Several self‐report and observational measures were used. The groups were not found to differ significantly on any measures before the intervention. In addition, participants did not change significantly as a result of participating in either type of training class. The lack of treatment effects may be due to the high educational level of the participants. Parents who volunteer for such training programs may be those who need them least.
