Conduct Disorder and Behavioural Parent Training Summary


Conduct Disorder and Behavioural Parent Training: Research and Practice by Dermot OReilly

Progress made with children with conduct disorder in specialist schools often does not transfer to the home, but this book shows how behavioural parent training and applied behaviour analysis can help professionals work with parents to continue improving their child's behaviour.

Conduct Disorder and Behavioural Parent Training provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of conduct disorder and the individual, familial and social factors that influence the development of persistent antisocial behaviour. The author presents thorough evidence for the effectiveness of the following aspects of behavioural parent training:

* compliance training

* encouraging good behaviour through praise, enthusiasm and attention

* using `time out' as an effective punishment technique

* transfer of improvements to school setting

* effects of treatment on the child's siblings.

He considers the relative impact and costs of different settings for parent training, and outlines ethical issues and future directions for research in this area.

This book is essential reading for all professionals involved in the care of children with conduct disorder, as well as psychology and social work students and academics.

Conduct Disorder and Behavioural Parent Training Reviews


This book is an in-depth analysis of various behavioural training programmes for parents, which range from compliance training to effective discipline and positive parenting practices. It is written in an accessible but academic style, which is both thorough and sincere. The book is well structured with clearly flagged sections within each chapter that allow the reader to easily locate the passage they're looking for. This may seem like a trivial point, but for a busy practitioner ease of access is a significant factor. -- Children Now Magazine
An excellent, scholarly, but essentially practical book. Salute. One to keep at your elbow. -- from the Foreword by Professor Brian Sheldon
This is not an introductory-level book, but is a clear and through text for an experienced professional working with families with children with conduct disorders and for those of us who support more 'mainstream' parents it is an interesting an in depth analysis of programmes that may help our more challenging clients. -- Children Now Magazine
