This book presents an in-depth look at evidence-based programs for training parents of children with behavior problems. Authors Shriver and Allen review the empirical support for four major programs, as well as some more popular programs that lack strong empirical support. Throughout this review they teach readers how to identify the best research in parent training, how to prepare for parent training sessions, and finally show how to translate this research into everyday practice.

Parents usually are the most influential people in a child's life. So when child problems like noncompliance, hyperactivity, sleep problems, feeding problems, toileting problems, academic problems, and adolescent–parent conflict arise it is important for parents to take on the primary role in their resolution. This book explains what parents are taught when collaborating with a psychologist or counselor and how they are taught effectively.

Practitioners, whether they are experienced, new to parent training, or students of the field, will find this book to be a valuable resource for taking interventions developed under tightly controlled research conditions and adapting them to the conditions of day-to-day practice, where resources are more limited and presenting problems are often more complex.
