The main goals of parent-training programmes are to teach the principles of child behaviour management, increase parental competence and confidence in raising children and to improve the parent/carer-child relationship by using good communication and positive attention to aid the child’s development. Programmes typically take place weekly for one-hour and run for between 8 – 16 weeks. Trained therapists facilitate the sessions. An example of a programme is Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).
