This paper lays out the research methodology and outcomes for a study that sought to determine the short-term impacts of a home-based, parent and child therapy program to treat disruptive behaviors among young children living in poverty.
The authors report on their examination on the impacts of Early Pathways, a home-based, parent and child therapy program for the treatment of disruptive behaviors among young children living in poverty. In this study, 199 clinically referred children were randomly assigned to either immediate treatment (IT) or wait-list control (WL) conditions. Results indicated that parents in the IT condition reported significant improvements in their child’s disruptive and prosocial behaviors and increased nurturing and decreased use of corporal and verbal punishment by their parents compared to the WL families. Gains were maintained for children in both the IT and WL conditions at three-month follow-up. Publisher Abstract Provided
