A shortened version of the basic IY Program : effects four years after parent training
Background: To test whether the effects of a shortened version of the Basic Incredible Years program, aimed at preventing child behavior problems, were sustained 4 years after the initial intervention. Method: Data were obtained from parents in a randomized controlled trial for children aged 6 to 12 (N = 117). Results: Significant increases on positive parenting and parents’ sense of competence, and significant decreases of harsh parenting were observed. No significant difference between groups on child behavior problems as measured by ECBI Intensity scores were detected. Conclusion: This shortened version of the Incredible Years program appear efficient at sustaining changes on positive parenting, harsh discipline and parents sense of efficacy over a 4 year period.
