Title: An Examination of Group Parent Training with Contextualized Coaching on Positive Parenting Practices
Author: Cohen, Dana, 1980-
Abstract: There is some evidence to support the use of parent training with families with young children with developmental disabilities exhibiting challenging behaviors. However, not all caregivers respond to group parent training. The purpose of this paper is to describe a study examining the use of contextualized coaching with a group parent training with two high risk families. Maternal caregivers from both families participated in a group based parent training using a modified version of the Incredible Years curriculum provided by the local early intervention agency. A multiple baseline across behaviors research design was used to examine the relation between contextualized coaching and positive parenting practices. Contextualized coaching consisted of individualized, performance-based feedback, live modeling, and material support. Results indicate contextualized coaching was functionally related to increases in positive care-giving practices. Results are discussed in terms of applications for practice and future research in parent training.
