Group behavioural parent training for children with disruptive behaviour disorders refers to interventions that involve psycho-education and teaching parents behaviour management techniques. Techniques for parents to use with their children include reinforcement, teacher correspondence, reward systems, “time-out” and routine building. Sessions involve a mixture of educational instruction, role-playing and live or videotaped modelling. Interventions typically take place weekly for one-hour and run for 8–16 weeks. Trained therapists facilitate the group sessions in a range of locations (e.g. school or community centre). An example is the Triple P Positive Parenting Programme.
