    Abstract:

    The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of Parenting Wisely, an interactive CD-ROM parent-training programme, in terms of reducing behaviour problems in children and increasing parents' knowledge and use of effective parenting skills. Fifteen parents of children referred to a community care psychology service with behaviour management difficulties were randomly assigned to one of two treatment groups: an early treatment group and a delayed treatment group. Both groups reported significant decreases in the number and intensity of child behaviour problems two weeks following use of the programme. Parents reported an increased use of effective parenting skills at two and four-week follow-up and showed greater knowledge of parenting skills taught in the programme at two-week follow-up. These findings support the Parenting Wisely programme as an effective tool for teaching parenting skills. Parents were considerably satisfied with the programme's content and format. The potential use of the programme in clinical practice and prevention is discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved) (from the journal abstract)
